  • I don't even know what that is, so I am no help. Try a hot bath to help and relax you so you can fall asleep better, I have heard that lavender oil helps out a lot too.

  • No. I have used it when I wasn't pregnant, and considered using it during pregnancy when I couldn't sleep. But then I did some reading and found that it is NOT recommended for use by pregnant women because they just don't know the effects it could have on the fetus. Try some warm milk and a hot bath. Not ideal, I know!
