Summary Statement:

Dr. Killenberg  is the principal investigator on a study entitled, “Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) for the Treatment of Postpartum Depression.” This study is an open-label, single arm, pilot study, using rTMS for the treatment of postpartum depression. The aims of the study are to assess the efficacy and tolerability of this treatment in ten postpartum women with major depression, and to monitor the durability of effect over a six month period. The results of this study will be important in the field of perinatal psychiatry, where safe and non-pharmacological treatments would be a welcome option for treating postpartum depression.
