Good news for non-pharmacologic interventions for prenatal depression. More evidence that acupuncture is an effective treatment for depression during pregnancy. Women in the study experience significantly less depression, according to one of the authors, Dr. Schnyer.
The study was presented today at the Maternal-Fetal Medicine annual meeting.
This is important information since women and healthcare professionals would prefer not to use antidepressants during pregnancy if they don’t need to.
