A brief sleep focused psychoeducation program for sleep-related outcomes in new mothers: A randomised controlled trial.
TLDR
Prenatal sleep psychoeducation did not produce a sustained effect on maternal sleep throughout the postpartum period, and there was little evidence of benefits on depressive symptoms.
Appraisal of systematic reviews on interventions for postpartum depression: systematic review
TLDR
Overall the systematic reviews on interventions for PPD are of low-moderate quality and are not improving over time.
Sleep Health Promotion Interventions and Their Effectiveness: An Umbrella Review
TLDR
Results were limited by high heterogeneity between studies, mixed results, and variable review quality, Nevertheless, this umbrella review is a first step towards understanding the current state of sleep health promotion and gives an overview of interventions across the lifespan.
Postpartum Depression Interventions
TLDR
Current research is synthesized to answer the question, what nursing interventions best treat postpartum depression affecting mothers of low SES in developed countries, and exercise is the most effective.
The influence of sleep quality on weight retention in the postpartum period.
TLDR
Light activity and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity in the postpartum were associated with reduced odds of being a "bad" sleeper and the influence of GWG on PPWR was modified by post partum sleep quality.
The effects of infant behavioural sleep interventions on maternal sleep and mood, and infant sleep: A randomised controlled trial
TLDR
The intervention led to a significant improvement in maternal sleep quality and depression, and the results imply the importance of considering sleep patterns differences and cultural-based intervention's design.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Light Dark Therapy for Maternal Postpartum Insomnia Symptoms: Protocol of a Parallel-Group Randomised Controlled Efficacy Trial
TLDR
If found effective, CBT and LDT could represent efficacious, safe, and inexpensive treatments for improving postpartum insomnia and mitigate its negative impact on maternal well-being.

TLDR
The belief that behavioral intervention for sleep in the first 6 months of life improves outcomes for mothers and babies is historically constructed, overlooks feeding problems, and biases interpretation of data.
Association between sleep quality and postpartum depression
TLDR
An association between sleep quality in women who had given birth in the last 3 months and symptoms of postpartum depression is found.

TLDR
There was evidence of a strong relationship between sleep disturbance and postpartum depression; however, the participants in the 13 studies were predominantly educated, middle class, older than age 30 years, and White, which increased the possibility of bias.
