Can Sleep Apnea Increase the Risk of Premature Birth?

According to a press release from the University of Australia, new research shows an association between poor sleep and premature birth. “Mothers suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, short sleeps and poor quality sleep…could increase the likelihood of preterm birth, and perhaps even stillbirth,” said lead researcher Jane Warland. In fact, good sleep during pregnancy may help prevent premature birth. The most significant finding Warland made after analyzing several maternal sleep studies is the relationship between premature delivery and maternal sleep apnea—with 4 out of the 5 studies demonstrating a connection between the two. Researchers hope this kind of information will encourage mothers-to-be to prioritize good sleep to protect the health of their unborn babies.
