Soledad is undertook a PhD in Psychology at the University of Melbourne with Professor Milgrom as co-supervisor. The focus of her research is exploring the subjective perception of women about their experiences of pregnancy and childbirth, through the assessment of cognitive vulnerability to depression and coping styles. In the context of this research, she is exploring how processing and coping strategies used by pregnant women vary from the waking to the non-waking state. She is also very interested in the influence of sleep on the development of postnatal distress.
