Sleep and our bodies...
The importance of sleep for brain, emotions and body are tremendous. Most of us are never educated on just HOW important and what is reasonable to expect during pregnancy and when a new little human enters our lives. Lack of and interruption of sleep, have strong correlation to perinatal mood disorders: Depression, Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Postpartum Psychosis.
