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 sleep symptoms before. In non-pregnant populations, sleep disturbances has been linked to poorer dietary intakes, reduced glucose tolerance and a greater risk of obesity.
