Women have specific sleep issues which are related to their physiology. While any woman may experience (just like any man) any of the typical disorders of sleep as outlined by the International Classification of Sleep Disorders reference, they can also have sleep problems that are directly related to menstrual cycles, pregnancy, postpartum motherhood, menopause and those disorders related specifically to female reproduction.
For May, SHC focuses on sleep problems specific to women throughout the lifespan, as well as common sleep disorders that women may be surprised to learn are not limited to their male counterparts. SHC will also discuss how lifestyle choices and demands may impact sleep quality and quantity and why this reality for women may be different than for men.
