Creating a person may just be the most taxing act a human being can undergo. Mothers-to-be aren’t just building muscle; they’re building flesh, brain cells, and bone from scratch. Even after giving birth, mothers have to try and sleep around the nighttime feeding schedule of their newborn, followed a couple years later by chasing around a toddler with a seemingly endless amount of energy. Add to this the day-to-day pressures of work and possibly raising multiple little ones at a time, and it’s hard to imagine a more tiring position to be in—which is why having the right bed is so important. For moms and moms-to-be, this means a power bed
A power bed comes with a motorized adjustable foundation that allows you to make precise adjustments to the head and foot of your bed. Here are 5 ways that a power bed helps to give moms the rest that they deserve.
1. Give relief to your swollen feet.
Sure, during the day you might be cramming your new sausage feet into the last pair of shoes that still fits, but at the end of the day, you just want sweet relief. Forget the wobbly stack of throw pillows: with a power bed you can easily elevate your feet with a power base to reduce the swelling.
2. Get the support you need after delivery.
Your body is absolutely amazing (and pregnancy is proof!) but going through labor still does quite a number on a lot of areas down there. If you had a C-section, your body is recovering from both childbirth and a major surgery. In either instance, you can probably use all the help you can get. A power base with the ability to lift the head of your bed gives remarkable support to your stomach and abs when you're getting in and out of bed several times a day.
3. Feed your baby comfortably.
The head-up function of power beds also helps to turn your warm bed into a nursing chair in the middle of the night and make nursing or bottle feeding ten times easier. You can even get full split or split-top mattress options so you can be feeding while your partner is still sleeping soundly in anti-snore position next to you.
4. Experience stress-relieving massage.
If there was ever a stage of life when a good massage can really save the day, it's during during pregnancy and early motherhood. Many power beds come with massage options that have proven circulation-enhancing benefits.
5. Have a bed that fits your lifestyle.
You probably use your bed for more than just sleeping: it might be your living room for reading or watching your favorite show, it's a table for breakfast in bed, it's the best spot for snuggling with your partner and your growing family. Power beds make those sweet, everyday moments a lot more comfortable.
Being a mom is no easy feat, and power bases make it just a little bit easier.
