Study Links Postpartum Depression To Medication Given During Childbirth

LIVE IN CHOPPER 2 JOE BEER MAN, CBS 2 NEWS

SOME HEALTH NEWS NOW, POST PARTUM DEPRESSION CAN LEAD TO CRYING, INABILITY TO CARE FOR THE NEW BABY TO SUICIDE AND NOW THERE'S CONCERN AFTER A STUDY LINKS IT TO A MEDICATION COMMONLY GIVEN TO WOMEN DURING CHILDBIRTH THIS LITTLE BUNDLE OF JOY IS EMILY RUBENSTEIN SHE'S EDEN RUBENSTEIN'S SECOND CHILD AND A LOT EASIER THAN HER FIRST, SEAN, WHO IS NOW 25

IT WAS AFTER SEAN WAS BORN THAT EDEN STARTED HAVING TROUBLE I WAS CRYING CONSTANTLY MY HUSBAND HAD TO COME HOME MULTIPLE TIMES IT GOT BAD ENOUGH THAT HER DOCTOR SUGGESTED SHE WAS SUFFERING POST PARTUM DEPRESSION SHE PUT ME ON A LOW DOSE OF ZOLOFT AND SOUGHTED I SEE A THERAPIST

THERE'S A CLUE AS TO WHY IT STRIKES EDEN AND OTHERS A NEW STUDY LINKS OXYTOCIN TO A 37% INCREASED RISK OF POST PARTUM DEPRESSION THE DRUG IS GIVEN TO WOMEN AROUND THE TIME OF DELIVERY IT'S USED TO INITIATE LABOR, START LABOR, TO GET IT GOING, OR HELP IT ALONG IF IT'S NOT MOVING ALONG QUICKLY ENOUGH BUT IT'S USED TO PREVENT OR TREAT POST PARTUM HEMORRHAGE

WOMEN NORMALLY MAKE OXYTOCIN AND WOMEN WITH LOW LEVELS OF THE HORN DURING PREGNANCY — HORMONE DURING PREGNANCY ARE MORE LIKELY TO GET DEPRESSED WE THOUGHTS PEOPLE WHO RECEIVED PITOCIN WOULD HAVE A REDUCED RISK OF DEVELOPING POST PARTUM DEPRESSION EDEN WAS TREATED FOR HER DEPRESSION, INCLUDING DURING PREGNANCY WITH EMILY YOU'RE OKAY YEAH, MUCH HAPPIER

THE STUDY DOESN'T MEAN OXYTOCIN CAUSES POST PARTUM DEPRESSION IT'S AN ASSOCIATION BECAUSE THE MEDICINE IS POTENTIALLY LIFE SAVING, IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU SHOULD AVOID OXYTOCIN IF YOU NEED IT BUT IF YOU GET IT DURING DELIVERY, KEEP A CLOSER EYE OUT
