Thank you for your query.

1. There is an average weight gain of about 25% of the pre-pregnancy weight.

2. This weight gain may lead to snoring.

3. If this is mild and lasts only a few months after pregnancy, treatment may not be necessary.

4. For alleviation of symptoms a Sleep Study (PolySomnoGram or PSG) may be done and if necessary, an auto CPAP machine may be used for some time.

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
