Summary
Brief summary
The study will investigate the association between sleep-disordered breathing during pregnancy and foetal growth and well-being. It is hypothesised that Obstructive Sleep Apnoea is detrimental to foetal health (acute foetal compromise as evidenced by abnormal cardiotocography (foetal heart rate monitoring) during sleep and impaired foetal growth in late pregnancy).
