Sleep and Fatigue
Patients: What did you hear about sleep and fatigue during pregnancy? What advice did you get during your birth hospitalization? After discharge? From your provider? From your infant’s provider? From friends and family? What resources were helpful and why? What information would have made the first 12 weeks easier for you?
Providers: What guidance do you provide for families about sleep and fatigue? How do you discuss shared sleep surfaces? How do you advise mothers to cope with fatigue? What evidence do you use to inform this advice? Are there educational materials that you recommend?
