The Efficacy of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Treatment for Women with Postpartum Depression

thesis
posted on 2024-06-30, 00:22 authored by MADDISON HUDDLE
Women with significant postpartum depression (PPD) require safe and effective treatment. PPD not only impacts the mother but can also have adverse effects on the child. Primary treatment options for PPD have limitations, including negative side effects, invasive procedures, prolonged treatment responses, and can affect a mother’s ability to breastfeed. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is recognised as an effective option for treating PPD, as treatment appears to mitigate certain drawbacks of traditional approaches. The overarching aim of the thesis was to review existing research within the field and further investigate the efficacy of rTMS treatment for women with PPD.
