Postpartum Depression Research

PPD ACT Apple Watch Study

Would you like to help researchers improve the way care is delivered for postpartum depression (PPD) treatment?

The PPD ACT Apple Watch study will track the physical and mental symptoms of PPD using an Apple Watch, in order to give your healthcare provider personalized information about how PPD is affecting you.

Apple Watch

You may be eligible if you are:

  • 3 months postpartum or less
  • Experiencing postpartum depression
  • An iPhone 5 or 6 user (in order to pair with the Apple Watch)
  • Willing to be seen for care at UNC Hospitals

 Participants will receive a $100 gift card for returning the Apple watch in good working condition. Please contact Holly at 919-445-0218 or holly_krohn@med.unc.edu for more information about this exciting opportunity to contribute to postpartum depression research.
