In this episode, Dr. Natasha Fievre, an OBGYN, illustrates how a partner can play a critical role in detecting the sign of sleep breathing disorders like sleep apnea early in their fertility journey by recognizing common signs and how seeking treatments, such as using oral appliance therapy, can not just improve their sleep health but also increase the success of pregnancy.
