Venue: William Liley Lecture Theatre (Rm 12.058)

Location: Auckland Hospital Support Building

The Maternal Sleep in Pregnancy Research Group at the University of Auckland investigates how maternal sleep positions may influence foetal outcomes in pregnancy.

Hear presentations from:

  • Ms Robin Cronin

Recruitment barriers and participant feedback in a NZ stillbirth study

Robin is a 2nd year PhD student in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Robin’s presentation is on factors influencing recruitment of women into the NZ Multicentre Case-Control Stillbirth Study. Using thematic analysis, she will provide insights into how women felt about their participation.

  • Dr Minglan Li

Supine going-to-sleep position is a major risk factor for term stillbirth: findings from the NZ Multicentre Stillbirth Case-control Study

Minglan Li is a Research Fellow in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. She will share some recent findings on the risk factors for late stillbirth in term and preterm pregnancy using data from the NZ Multicentre Stillbirth Case-Control Study.

  • Ms Aimee Humphries

Anatomy of the collateral venous drainage in late pregnancy in different positions

Aimee is a 5th year medical student currently undertaking a BMedSci (Hons) within the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and Anatomy and Medical Imaging. She will be presenting the results of a novel MRI study done on women in their third trimester which investigates the effect of position on maternal venous flow.

  • Dr Jordan McIntyre

Maternal sleep physiology in healthy late pregnancy: effect of position on inspiratory air flow

Jordan is a Research Fellow within the Departments of Paediatrics, and Obstetrics and Gynaecology. He will share some of the findings from his recently completed PhD on the maternal respiratory responses to different sleep positions in healthy late pregnancy.
