WHAT IF YOU WERE ADDICTED TO OPIOIDS—AND PREGNANT?

Opioid abuse among pregnant women has reached epidemic proportions. We are improving health care and outcomes for women at risk—from the expectant mom recovering from addiction to the new mom suffering from depression.

Spotlight on: POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION

CHALLENGES

About one in nine women in the U.S. experiences symptoms of postpartum depression.

Postpartum depression is a condition that affects new mothers. Symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Suicidal thoughts

WHAT MAGEE SCIENTISTS ARE DOING

  • We are studying ways to improve access to affordable, quality health care for women, especially women at risk.
  • We are exploring the link between the health of the pregnant mother and the long-term health for both mother and child.
  • We are evaluating the use of antidepressants with postpartum depression and whether this affects the mother or baby.

Clinical Research & Trials

For over two decades, we have dedicated our clinical research studies and clinical trials to improving the health care of women, men, and infants everywhere. Our research would not be possible without the generous participation of many study volunteers.
