SSRIs and Birth Defects

Pregnant women with depression often find themselves choosing between the lesser of two evils. Should they take antidepressants and risk the slight but real possibility of birth defects? Or should they forgo treatment and chance a relapse?

One study of nearly 10,000 infants born with birth defects and nearly 6,000 healthy infants found that women who took sertraline (Zoloft) in the first few months of pregnancy had twice the risk of having a baby born with a heart defect.
