Have you felt sad or overwhelmed? Been unable to eat or sleep normally? Felt angry or irritable? Or had scary thoughts?
If so, you may be eligible for a study examining brain activity in post partum women. We are looking for women with infants aged 3-6 months.

The anticipated time commitment for participation is approximately 2 hours. Monetary compensation is provided for time spent participating in the study and childcare is provided.
If you are female, heterosexual, between the ages 20 and 40, not using hormonal birth control, currently in a committed relationship, not pregnant, have a child aged 3-6 months, and primarily breast-feed your infant, you may be eligible for this study. It is also required that you are using a reliable non-hormonal method of birth control, such as condoms or a diaphragm.
