Louise O’Brien interviewed by New York Times about sleep habits of Ghanaian pregnant women

Louise O’Brien, Ph.D., M.S., was interviewed by the New York Times about her research into the sleep habits of Ghanaian pregnant women.

The story was published Tuesday, featuring O’Brien, of the UMHS Sleep Disorders Center, who was the senior author on a study that found Ghanaian women who slept on their backs were at increased risk of stillbirth.

Jocelynn Owusu, M.P.H., of the Department of Health Behavior and Education in the U-M School of Public Health, was the study’s first author. Owusu interviewed women soon after delivery at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, Ghana.
