Posted on Friday, August 10, 2018 09:55 AM

A Lakehead University study is currently underway dealing with pregnant women and postpartum depression.

Carley Pope is conducting the research and she says 25 women are taking part.

Pope says early findings show that the key is to be mindful and she recommends meditation.

She says social engagement is also important to avoid depression.

Her research is expected to wrap up in March of 2019.
