Help us study postpartum depression

Suggested ad (University of Iowa and University of Illinois-Chicago)

We’ve partnered with The University of Iowa and the University of Illinois-Chicago to invite Ovia moms to participate in a research study designed to help prevent postpartum depression. Tap here to learn a bit more, and consider enrolling in the research study.

Why this study is important

Postpartum major depression (PPMD) occurs in about 7% of women in the first three months after childbirth. There are several treatments that have proven effective, but all of them require attendance at a treatment site. This can be a huge barrier for women without access to decent transportation, or if there isn’t a treatment site in her area.

Our partners at the University of Illinois-Chicago and The University of Iowa are trying to leverage the power of web-based tools to help improve the health outcomes for women who may experience PPMD. If their program is successful, it could pave the way for more affordable and accessible PPMD treatment options.
