The Effect of Maternal Depression and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) on Mother-Infant Sleep

September 14, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

This webinar examines the relationship between mothers’ mental health and mother-infant sleep. If mothers have depression or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) during pregnancy, it affects their babies’ sleep, but other factors such as breastfeeding and infant sleep location can also have an impact. The key message of this session is that maternal mental health does impact both mothers’ and babies’ sleep and can make breastfeeding more difficult. However, mothers can overcome these effects and breastfeeding is one important way to modify the physiological effects of depression and trauma.
