Reply to Antidepressants while pregnant/breastfeeding

My ob/gyn put me on 50mg of sertraline (Zoloft) at the end of my last pregnancy. For me, being in a healthy state of mind to care for my sons (I have a two year old as well), and to still be a tolerable companion for my husband was of utmost importance. I recall her saying that starting the medication later in the third trimester lowered the chances of the baby having withdrawals. Fortunately for us, he didn’t go through any withdrawals. I did a lot of reading on the pros and cons because I was really worried about it. But like I said, ultimately it came down to being mentally stable and healthy for my family. Just do what you feel is best for you and your family.
