Three Lessons from my Sleep Study

  1. Everybody needs a different amount of sleep because of how much time it takes the brain to complete the necessary night time processes. Me needing nine hours is unique to me and I ought to honor that need.
  2. Sleep and nap when ever I can while pregnant, but as soon as the baby is born get back on a rhythm, especially with a regular rising time.
  3. Sleep deprivation is the leading cause of postpartum depression. Prioritize sleep and it will benefit your health.
