Insomnia, Insufficient Sleep May Be Common For Women And Their Male Partners During Pregnancy

Reuters (11/10, Doyle) reports that researchers have found that “during pregnancy, women and their male partners sometimes report insomnia or insufficient sleep, which may be tied to depression.” Nearly “half of women reported that they slept more than usual during pregnancy, but did not have better quality sleep, said senior author Tiina Paunio.” The investigators found that “overall, 12 percent of women and 15 percent of men had either insomnia or too little sleep.” The findings were published online in Sleep Medicine.
