What is Postpartum Depression?

A CDC study shows that about 1 in 10 women in the United States reported symptoms that suggest they experienced an episode of major depression in the last year, but according to the American Psychological Association, 1 in 7 women experience a much more serious mood disorder – postpartum depression (PPD).

Ketamine infusion therapy for postpartum depression can offer relief from many depression symptoms, including anxiety, lonesomeness, and lack of interest in enjoyable activities. Managing postpartum with ketamine works rapidly since it is administered intravenously – a number of patients observe a big difference in just a couple of hours.

Ketamine for Postpartum Depression Treatment

Ketamine infusions are quickly becoming one of the most popular treatment options for various disorders, including postpartum depression, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and OCD.

Unlike many traditional medications like SSRIs which can take months to start working, ketamine therapy offers patients relief quickly, with some individuals reporting relief within a few hours of their first infusion session.

How Does Ketamine Help Treat Postpartum Depression?

Scientists believe that ketamine helps with postpartum depression by rapidly boosting the activity of glutamate, a neurotransmitter inside the frontal cortex of the human brain, while also allowing new pathways to form in the same area.

The promptness of ketamine in yielding its therapeutic effect occurs because it bypasses the conventional serotonin path and goes straight to switching on glutamate.

This is remarkably different from conventional treatments, which initially boost serotonin activity levels in different areas of the brain to ultimately affect glutamate. This process usually takes weeks, sometimes months. Ketamine, on the other hand, produces rapid results and relief from postpartum depression symptoms.

Where Will I Receive My Ketamine Infusions?

We strive to ensure all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible in their private rooms during treatment.

A number of our patients refer to a “dissociation” effect. This effect aids your treatment and delivers a positive response to ketamine therapy for many patients.

This is all an ordinary component of the treatment. You will always remain in a safe atmosphere with our team to monitor you and be readily available to you during your infusion.
