  • Duration: 60 Mins

  • Learning Format: Webinar
  • Handout: Yes

This presentation will cover the importance of sleep in pregnancy, average sleep in each trimester and the effects of lower quality and duration of sleep as well as sleep position. Lower sleep quality and shorter duration of sleep has been linked with preterm birth, prenatal and postpartum depression, while supine sleep position in third trimester has been linked with stillbirth. We will explore what the research says about causality and pathways as well as how we can educate our clients to modify sleep behavior and potentially limit their risk of these outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

1.Describe the causal links between sleep loss and preterm birth, prenatal and postpartum depression.

2. Describe the causal links between maternal sleep position on disordered maternal breathing and stillbirth.

3. Explain how to counsel clients of best sleep practices and how be alert to the insomnia/depression dyad.
