Women not getting enough sleep

So, women aren't getting enough sleep. And this is childfree news how?
The study found that 72 per cent of working mothers and 68 per cent of single working women suffered from insomnia. Stay-at-home mothers had even more difficulties, with 74 per cent of them saying they suffered insomnia at least a few nights a week.
"Women are blindsided by their biology," he told Canada AM. "They have periods, they become pregnant, they have babies and the babies keep them awake. "

Yes, clearly the difference between 68% and 72-74% isn't huge, but it's still significant. The moral of the story? If you want to reduce your risk of insomnia, don't have babies.
