Depression affects many people, but finding treatment through medication is more complicated for pregnant women. As with any other substance they consume, antidepressants can affect their unborn children.
According to Live Science, some antidepressants have recently been scrutinized for their presumed safe consumption during pregnancy, but in fact, some studies show that antidepressants such as Zoloft used during the third trimester of pregnancy may lead to drug injuries or birth defects for the child.
Zoloft may cause drug injuries and birth defects such as pulmonary hypertension for the baby.
