If you have experienced postpartum depression after childbirth, consider joining an NIH study to help researchers understand if such depression is caused by hormonal changes.

There is no cost to participate. Compensation is provided.

The seven-month study involves 30-45 minute appointments every two weeks. During the visits, study participants will undergo clinical interviews, psychological testing, mood self-ratings, blood draws and routine laboratory tests.
