The University of Michigan Sleep Disorders Center is conducting research about sleep complaints and symptoms of sleep apnea during pregnancy and whether there is a link between your sleep and the health of you and your baby.
We are interested in finding out the types of sleep complaints and how common sleep problems are in pregnant women. We also want to know whether there is a link between sleep problems during pregnancy and the health of you and your baby. At the end of the survey about sleep problems you will be asked if we can contact you after your baby is born. If you agree, you will be asked to provide us with your email address. Your email address will be kept strictly confidential and will not be shared with anyone. The follow up survey will ask about your blood pressure, what type of delivery you had, baby’s birth weight, etc. You do not have to take part in the follow up survey if you don’t want to.
All answers to the survey are confidential and are kept in a secure, password-protected database within the University of Michigan. You may choose to submit the survey anonymously or you may choose to provide your email address so that we can contact you to find out about your delivery. Published results of this research will not contain any identifiable information. What we learn from this research may tell us whether some sleep disorders in pregnancy are associated with health problems for moms and babies. Knowing this information will benefit moms and babies in the future.
