Pregnant women frequently have sleep concerns. Some concerns are related to the course of the pregnancy, some sleep disorders change during pregnancy, and others develop new onset sleep disorders during pregnancy. Having a sleep medicine professional to assist in the management of a pregnant woman to address the treatment of particular sleep disorders can be helpful in alleviating specific concerns over the course of the pregnancy. Anticipating potential interactions or how the pregnancy and the sleep disorder may affect each other may improve maternal and fetal outcomes. This chapter will review common sleep disorders that can be encountered in pregnant women.
