It is essential that expecting moms get enough sleep at night. Usually, pregnant women find it hard to sleep comfortably due to many factors. An electric blanket can be a lot of help to keep warm during cold nights. Although pregnant women should take extra precaution when using a heated blanket during pregnancy due to an increased risk of miscarriage, it is recommended that an electric blanket should be used only after the first 12 weeks of pregnancy to avoid the risk of miscarriage. And when an electric blanket is used, it should only be set at a low-temperature setting to be safe from overheating which is not good for the developing baby.
