MC3’s perinatal medical director, Dr. Maria Muzik, was featured on a YOUR NEWS NOW segment and quoted in an accompanying article about the new postpartum depression pill, zuranolone.

“We are very excited about this new medicine because it’s the first time that we specifically target the mechanism for depression after childbirth is a very different mechanism than depression at any other time in a person’s life. Or in men,” says Dr. Maria Muzik, a perinatal psychiatrist at UM Health. “This is very specific to childbirth. And it’s very promising to go down this route because we might develop ” even better, more promising medicines following this route.”
