Oxygen For Pregnancy

Pregnant women need more oxygen

Increasing oxygen flow improves expectant mom's health and baby's health

Pregnant women require 20% more oxygen due to harmone changes and additional demands from your baby. The air we breathe is only about 21 percent oxygen. Pregnancy may also result in numerous changes with a growing new life inside which is pressing against the mother’s diaphragm. New moms may feel uncomfortable or breathless intermittently.

Is it normal to feel breathless in pregnancy?

Shortness of breath affects 60-70% of expectant moms. In medical terms, it is referred to as Dyspnea, or air hunger. 

In the first trimester, breathing feels heavy due to the increase in pregnancy harmone progestrone. It increases the capacity of your body to absorb more oxygen into the blood stream and push out carbon dioxide. This process overwhelms the body to gasp for air (oxygen). As we prepare for the third trimester, breathing becomes more conscious as simple day activities may feel like running a marathon. Breathlessness in late pregnancy is mainly due to a growing uterus and an expanding belly. The growing uterus and fetus pushes the diaphragm and lungs upwards, making it harder to take deep breaths. 

Although it may feel uncomfortable, it is harmless unless it is due to some serious illness. So, relax moms! Be patient and slow down abit to glide through pregnancy smoothly. 

How do i tackle breathlessness during pregnancy?

Here are some tips for some relief:

  1. Take things slowly and easily – Relax and be patient with every task on hand, or ask your husband for help! This is the time they can’t say no!
  2. Maintain a good posture so that your lungs have enough room to expand.
  3. Experiment different sleeping positions and find the most comfortable position for yourself. Generally, lying on the left side with pillows are said to help =)
