When treating the depressed post-partum woman who is nursing, we have two patients - the depressed woman and her infant. How can we choose the safest medication for both? Dr. Samantha Meltzer-Brody, assistant professor in the department of psychiatry at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Co-Director of the Perinatal Psychiatry Program of the UNC Center for Women's Mood Disorders joins host Dr. Leslie Lundt to discuss treating depression in breast feeding women.
