Investigating the relationship between sleep behaviour during pregnancy and adverse pregnancy related outcomes.
The majority of women will experience sleep disturbances in pregnancy, even if they have never experienced adverse sleepsymptoms before. In non-pregnant populations, sleep disturbances has been linked to poorer dietary intakes, reduced glucosetolerance and a greater risk of obesity. However, research examining this relationship in pregnancy is limited. This research aims toinvestigate the relationship between sleeping behaviour in pregnancy and diet and pregnancy, birth and postnatal outcomes (ChildData).
