Trust Me Post-Partum Insomnia Gets Better!

by Jenn Golan
(Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan)

When I first got pregnant I was so excited for the journey ahead. I mean, the pregnancy didn’t come easy since we had a previous miscarriage. Anyways once I got pregnant I knew that there would be challenges ahead but I didn’t realize how bad it would be.

To start things off I have never had any sleep issues, especially insomnia. In the weeks preceding my induction I had trouble sleeping but it was due to pain. I am not saying that I wasn’t tired; instead that the pain was so severe I couldn’t even think about sleeping. When I told my doctor about the problem he instructed me to take over the counter pain meds but I wanted to do the pregnancy drug free.

Anyways, I ended up taking some medications during my birthing and in the weeks to come I couldn’t sleep whatsoever. Even though I was so tired both physically and mentally I could not get myself to sleep for more than an hour or so. The doctor told me that this was a normal experience and I shouldn’t worry but it was hard to be sleep deprived during such a new and sometimes frustrating time. After a couple weeks it went away but I will never forget how hard it was for me.

"I just want to say in my capacity as pediatrician, teacher of pediatrics, and medical journalist, how very impressed I am by your website. I think your site is very thoughtful, not at all doctrinaire, and will be very valuable to mothers (and I think fathers, too in a second-hand sort of way) suffering from a variety of postpartum problems, of which the most common and perhaps the most serious is PPD. Anyway, thank you for your site, which I will certainly pass on to mothers in my practice."
