MGH Center for Women's Mental Health recently shared 'Essential Reads: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia During Pregnancy'. Sleep problems are common during pregnancy, and for some pregnant people, non-pharmacologic options can be effective. CBT specific for insomnia (CBT-I) involes 6-8 sessions dedicated to this issue and has also been delivered through mobile or web-app based platforms. The principles of CBT-I include cognitive restructuring, improving sleep hygiene and sleep environment, stimulus control therapy, relaxation training, and potentially sleep restriction during treatment. Increasing the tools for rejuvinative sleep can be helpful with mood disorders during pregnancy.
