Description

‘Many women who use antidepressants stop taking them during or just before pregnancy. However, many of these women fall back into depression. Will the child benefit from stopping the medication? Or is it preferable for the mother to continue using antidepressants so that she is less depressed? This is what I want to discover with my research.’
