The Silent Crisis of Stillbirth: Does Maternal Sleep Play a Role?"

Louise O'Brien

Louise M. O'Brien, Ph.D., M.S.

Research Professor, Neurology
Professor, Obstetrics and Gynecology
Research Scientist, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Dr. Louise O’Brien’s primary research interests include the impact of sleep disruption in pregnancy and the association with adverse maternal and fetal outcomes, including fetal growth restriction and stillbirth, as well as intervention therapies to optimize sleep in the perinatal population. She was responsible for developing collaborations between the Division of Sleep Medicine and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and has held several NIH grants, foundation grants, and donor funds in support of this work. In addition to pregnancy, Dr. O’Brien’s work includes the impact of sleep disruption on fertility/infertility. She is also involved in clinical trials of treatment of sleep-disordered breathing in children, both in typically developing children and those with medical conditions such as cerebral palsy, Trisomy 21, cleft palate repair, craniofacial anomalies, and Williams Syndrome.
