    Jennifer Felder, PhD, is a post-doctoral fellow in the UCSF Preterm Birth Initiative and Psychology and Medicine T32 fellowship program. Her research interests focus on the relationships between sleep, stress, and mood during pregnancy and postpartum. Currently, she is leading the Research on Expecting moms and Sleep Therapy (REST) Study to examine a web-based insomnia treatment program for pregnant women. Additionally, she studies mindfulness-based interventions for promoting well-being among pregnant and postpartum women. She is passionate about increasing women's access to evidence-based interventions using innovative delivery formats, including web-based programs and integration of mental health care within obstetrics and public health settings.
