Although many women report changes in their sleep during pregnancy, clinically significant insomnia is a not normal part of pregnancy and it can be treated using CBT-I. In this chapter, we provide an overview of the current research about sleep and insomnia during pregnancy, as well as considerations for assessment and treatment of insomnia during pregnancy. We also provide an outline of the adaptations to the CBT-I protocol for use during pregnancy.
