Sleep disorders in pregnant mothers linked to premature births

A study conducted by researchers from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) has credited sleep disorders, such as apnoea and insomnia, in pregnant mothers to be the cause of premature births. Premature births are the main cause of death for children under the age of five, worldwide.

Every year, more than 15 million babies are born prematurely – with about 1 million succumbing to death – while the others are left with birth-related complications like hearing impairment, learning disabilities, cerebral palsy and more.

“It is normal to experience sleep changes during pregnancy – often due to discomfort, pain or frequent trips to the bathroom,” explained Jennifer Felder, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow in the UCSF Department of Psychiatry and the lead author of the study.

“The current study focused on more impairing sleep problems that were severe enough to result in a sleep disorder diagnosis.”
Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
