Episode 6: Wellbeing For Parents - How To Deal With Sleep Deprivation

What about me? You say. Sleep deprivation is no laughing matter. In fact, it is classified as a form of torture. So in this episode we look at practical ways to manage that serious, fog-inducing lack of sleep. Dr Delwyn Bartlett from the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research talks about the difficulties new parents face. Nutritionist Heidi Sze talks about the food that can nourish us. Social worker Lana Sussman from The Parents Village gives us some simple coping strategies, and psychotherapist Melissa Hughes from Baby and Beyond Counselling, talks about the impact sleep deprivation can have on relationships and how to minimise the fall-out.
