Pregnancy, Antidepressants & Risk to Babes

Recommended Posts

ncc was kind enough to read and give us a layman's explanation of Christina Chambers', Ph.D., M.P.H., paper in the New England Journal of Medicine, February 2006, regarding risks to babies whose moms used SSRIs in late pregnancy.

There have been several questions about this article, so I am pinning her explanation.

Keep in mind that the risks outlined in this article are VERY SMALL.

Okay, well, at least two of you asked for it, so here's my bastardized outline of the study.

You can always skip to where it says Bottom Line.

If anyone wants more detailed facts/figures, PM me and I can help you out.

And -- I have 6 hours left of unlimited access to NEJM.
