Depression in the postpartum period
Nearly 20% of women experience postpartum depression (PPD) within the first three months after delivering their baby.
Psychotherapy is typically the first treatment option for women with PPD, however this involves a significant investment of time and effort, and the overall process is quite slow.
Antidepressants such as SSRIs are another treatment option, however people often report side effects and women express concerns about the effect on a breastfed infant.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a fast, effective treatment with minimal to no side effects.
