I am thinking of becoming a mother next year through artificial insemination.
I suffer from re-occurring depression and I take a mild anti depressant to manage this. The doctor has told me that it is safe to take during pregnancy but may cause my newborn to be restless when first born. However, I want my baby to be the healthiest it can possibly be. Do you think that taking the risk of a restless baby is worth staying on the medication or should I seek different treatment and risk depression?
I understand that medications and pregnancy can be a touchy subject, but I would really like to hear any opinions.
