Maternal circadian rhythms and pregnancy outcomes.

Workshop Teaser | All about sleep, circadian rhythms, and pregnancy outcomes.

Today’s discussion is going to give you another preview of a sleep workshop I am creating for parents (current, expecting and hopeful). The first workshop date is getting really close, and is looking to be sometime towards the end of January. I will let you know!

Exciting update! The recording of the full circadian pregnancy workshop will soon be available to all paid subscribers! Upgrade to get access as soon as it is released:

Welcome to today’s Office Hours for Brighter Days, Darker Nights

I’ve invited you and all subscribers to talk here about how sleep affects pregnancy and postpartum wellbeing. This video will give an overview of research I have found relating to:

  1. Differences between sleep habits of men and women across the lifespan

  2. How circadian disruption affects the leading cause of infertility in th US

  3. How melatonin aids implantation

  4. How circadian disruption affects placental function and pregnancy outcomes

  5. How melatonin strengthens labor and contributes to a better maternal experience

  6. How the mother’s rhythms are shared with the baby during pregnancy

  7. How the family’s rhythms are shared with the baby postpartum

  8. How baby’s initial circadian rhythm can affect their lifelong wellbeing

If you would like to take part, add your question or comment about sleep, fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum here:

Once you post your comment, your fellow readers and I will do our best to share our knowledge and tips.

New format!

Instead of making this a time-sensitive thing, I’ve decided to leave these office hours posts open for the duration between sessions. So, don’t worry about what time it is! We’ll still see your comments and I won’t close this discussion until the next session starts in two weeks.
