Postpartum Depression clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Postpartum depression is a condition that can happen after a woman has a baby. UCSF is recruiting for a clinical trial called the EMBRACE study. They are studying two types of prenatal care for 2,600 pregnant women in Fresno, California to see if they can help prevent postpartum depression.
Engaging Mothers & Babies; Reimagining Antenatal Care for Everyone (EMBRACE) Study
open to eligible females
This is a randomized comparative effectiveness study of two forms of enhanced prenatal care among 2,600 Medi-Cal eligible pregnant women in Fresno, California. The goal is to see whether group prenatal care with wrap around services versus individual prenatal care supplemented by services covered by the California Department of Public Health Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP) results in lower rates of preterm birth, less depression and anxiety, and more respectful and greater satisfaction with prenatal care.
Our lead scientists for Postpartum Depression research studies include Miriam Kuppermann, PhD, MPH.
