Hot flashes while pregnant

Get immediate relief from hot flashes while pregnant

Morning sickness, fatigue, and physical discomfort are the typical challenges usually associated with pregnancy, so it might come as a surprise for women who are expecting when they find themselves suddenly faced with hot flashes. And they're more common than you might think: 1 in 3 women will have to deal with hot flashes while pregnant.

These episodes of intense warmth and heavy sweating can zap your energy and make it difficult to focus on anything but cooling down. When they happen at home, hot flashes are difficult enough; but in a professional setting, trying to hide or manage these incidents can create even more stress and embarrassment.

That's why Embr Labs has developed the Embr Wave®, a thermal wristband that delivers cool relief for hot flashes on demand. With Embr Wave, you can access a safe, natural remedy for hot flashes during pregnancy—anywhere, anytime, without anyone else needing to know.

Make temperature work for you with Embr Wave

Embr Wave is a lightweight wearable that creates gentle warm or cool sensations that are felt on the skin of your inner wrist, an area of the body that is particularly sensitive to temperature. These thermal sensations work with your body's instinctual comfort response, using temperature signals to change how hot or cold you feel and delivering fast and effective relief for hot flashes in pregnancy.

Precise relief for hot flashes while pregnant
Embr Wave contains a compact thermoelectric heat pump that can instantly generate warmth or cooling at the touch of a button. These sensations are delivered in waves or patterns known as Waveforms, which are specifically engineered to deliver optimal relief for insomnia, stress, thermal discomfort, and hot flashes. By applying just the right amount of warming or cooling at the right time and in the right spot, the Wave communicates with the part of your brain that's responsible for thermoregulation as well as emotion, stress, and pleasure. Your brain, in return, recalibrates your body's perception of temperature so you can feel better.

How can a cool wrist bring relief for hot flashes?
Your body is naturally able to draw comfort from temperature sensations felt on one part of your skin. It's the same as when you place a cold compress on your neck and feel cooler all over. Or how holding a cup of hot coffee in your hands can help you feel warmer from head to toe. Embr Wave gives you the power to use this physical phenomenon in a precise and controlled way, so you can change your experience with temperature whenever and wherever you need it.

How to use it
If you're suffering from hot flashes while pregnant, Embr Wave lets you get relief in a snap: simply press a button on the device or tap in the mobile app to activate a series of cool waves that can be felt against the skin on your wrist. You control the temperature level, intensity, and length of each session, with options that range from 5 minutes up to 9 hours. The experience is as safe as touching a warm mug or a cold glass of water.

What's the deal with hot flashes while pregnant?

Hot flashes are thought to be a reaction to changing levels of hormones in your body. These hormonal fluctuations happen during menopause and the years leading up to it, but they can also happen during pregnancy. As your levels of estrogen or progesterone rise and fall, it can fool your internal thermostat into believing that you're overheating. As a result, your brain triggers a hot flash that releases heat quickly through your skin and sends your sweat glands into overdrive. These episodes tend to last anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes, but they can leave you exhausted, uncomfortable, and stressed, especially when they happen at work or in public.

What can help with hot flashes?
Remedies for hot flashes while pregnant tend to focus on reducing stress, getting more exercise, and controlling the temperature in the room. However, these approaches (when they're feasible at all) can't provide immediate assistance when a hot flash strikes. Some women turn to cooling products like ice packs, cooling gels, spray mists, or cooling vests worn under clothing. While these may offer some aid, they tend to be messy and difficult to use in professional settings. After all, most women wouldn't want to have to lead a meeting with a melting ice pack pressed to their chest or stop in the middle of a presentation to grab a bulky cooling vest out of the office freezer.

In contrast, Embr Wave's smart cooling band offers a clean, convenient, and inconspicuous way to find relief for hot flashes while pregnant. With Embr Wave, you can confidently go about your business, knowing that you can easily and privately manage any hot flashes that come your way.

Enhance sleep. Control comfort. Bust stress.

While Embr Wave is a highly effective remedy for hot flashes while pregnant, it also offers thermal wellness benefits for many other areas of your life.

Better sleep
Embr Wave's relaxing sensations can lull you to sleep more quickly and keep you resting comfortably through the night. Fall Asleep sessions are designed to reduce sleep onset latency, helping you doze off up to 28% faster. All Night sessions keep you resting easy at a temperature level that's just right for you, minimizing sleep disturbances, insomnia, and hot flashes for up to 9 continual hours.

Control over comfort
Studies show that using the Wave for just three minutes helped participants feel 5°F warmer or cooler on average. Women found Embr Wave particularly effective and were able to feel 9°F cooler or 6°F warmer. With the Wave on your wrist, you can keep control over your experience with temperature, no matter where you go or who's in charge of the thermostat.

Reduced stress
Embr Wave gives you access to soothing temperature sensations at the touch of a button. Just as a warm bath or a cold compress can ease tension and relieve anxiety, the Wave offers gentle warming or cooling waves to help you feel calm and collected whenever you're faced with stressful moments.

What are hot flashes?

Hot flashes are sudden feelings of intense warmth usually felt on the face, neck, and chest. These are often accompanied by heavy sweating and a racing or uneven heart rate. It's believed that hot flashes are triggered by changing hormone levels that mistakenly cause the brain to believe the body is overheating. The result is a hot flash designed to expel excess heat and cool the body quickly.

Why do some women have hot flashes while pregnant?

Hot flashes are usually associated with menopause, a time when a woman experiences significant changes in hormone levels. But some women also have hot flashes in early pregnancy, when lower levels of estrogen may throw off the body's internal thermostat in a way that's similar to menopause.

How does Embr Wave provide relief for hot flashes?

Embr Wave is a stylish piece of wearable technology that generates pleasing warm or cool sensations against the skin of the inner wrist, which is highly sensitive to temperature. These thermal sensations are clinically proven to help tap into the body's natural ability to rebalance its perception of temperature and lessen the severity and duration of a hot flash.
