Women with Sleep Disorders Are More Likely to Give Preterm Birth
For the study, the scientists analyzed the data they received from 2,265 women diagnosed with a sleep disorder during pregnancy. Some participants matched the study criteria with the same risk factors for early birth like high blood pressure, smoking during pregnancy, or having a previous premature birth. Having analyzed the received data, the scientists came to the conclusion that pregnant women with sleep disorders were 14.6% more likely to give birth before 37 weeks of gestation.
Senior author of the study Aric Pather, Ph.D., an assistant professor of psychiatry, says: “The women who had a diagnosis of a sleep disorder recorded in their medical record most likely had more severe presentations. It’s likely that the prevalence would be much higher if more women were screened for sleep disorders during pregnancy.”
