Comedian, writer, actress, SNL castmate and all around funny lady openly talks about sleep deprivation after childbirth. When her first child Archie was just 3 months old, she recalls falling asleep multiple times at work, while standing up and with her eyes opened.
After a night of being hooked up to machines and attempting to sleep, Poehler met with the doctor who told her she was only getting a few minutes of REM sleep at a time and that she has sleep apnea. Now, Poehler not only uses a CPAP, she also uses pillows to elevate her head while sleeping and oral appliances.
