UNC Opens Clinic To Treat Postpartum Depression

UNC Opens Clinic To Treat Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression is heartwrenching and debilitating. The lack of appropriate treatment options makes it even worse as evidenced by Maria Bruno's story. After her diagnosis, Maria was placed in the hospital's inpatient psychiatric ward, and into treatment sessions with patients suffering from drug and alcohol addictions. On suicide watch, she was also unable to see her baby.

"It's the kind of treatment these women should expect," says Dr. Samantha Meltzer-Brody.
