Women sought for Postpartum Depression Clinical Trial

 

The Lehigh Center for Clinical Research is currently studying the effects of a non-drug treatment for women with postpartum depression. Many women choose to rely less on medications during pregnancy and brestfeeding, and the study uses an FDA-approved, non-medication, non-invasive transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy as a core treatment for new mothers. Study participants from 18 to 50 years old are eligible for no-cost treatment and compensation for time and travel.

Studies have shown that about one in eight new mothers suffer from postpartum depression, a serious illness that can occur in the first few months after childbirth, miscarriage and stillbirth, and symptoms can last for months. Treatment for postpartum depression makes for happier moms and babies, strong bonding during breastfeeding, better physical health and more energetic interactions with other family members.

Interested mothers should call Lehigh Center for Clinical Reserch at 610-820-0342 or visit LehighCenter.com.
