Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The treatment of major depressive disorder during pregnancy is an important but complex clinical topic. Medications, electroconvulsive therapy, and psychotherapy are all reasonable choices, but each has its limitations. In this article, we propose that a novel device technology known as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation should be systematically studied as a potential treatment option for women with major depressive disorder during pregnancy.
