9780762749409: Pregnant on Prozac: The Essential Guide To Making The Best Decision For You And Your Baby

Antidepressants today top the list of drugs prescribed to women. But what happens when you add pregnancy into the mix? Pregnant on Prozac is the first guide to separate the myths from the facts. Taking a pull-no-punches, prescriptive approach, it clearly spells out not only the possible risks of antidepressant use―whether it be Prozac, Wellbutrin, or any of the host of other drugs―by hopeful mothers but also the lesser-known yet serious risks to both fetus and mother from untreated depression.

Shoshana Bennett answers such questions as: Does the media exaggerate the risk? What of options such as tapering the dose? What alternatives are worth pursuing? Most importantly, she empowers each woman with the knowledge to make the best decision for her. Pregnant on Prozac is a must-have for any prospective mother who has experienced depression or anxiety as well as anyone with a friend or loved one in this situation.

From the Back Cover:

Separating the myths from the facts―the first-ever guide for women about pregnancy and antidepressant use “Dr. Shoshana Bennett’s book provides a navigation tool for women with depression to enter motherhood well educated and empowered about what they can do to help themselves and to get the help they need from others.”
―Marlene P. Freeman, M.D., Perinatal and Reproductive Psychiatry Program, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School
“Dr. Bennett’s holistic approach surveys the available treatments and filters them through her wise perspective, sharing her empowering commentary with the women who need to know and those who love them.”
―Susan Dowd Stone, M.S.W., L.C.S.W.; former president, Postpartum Support International Pregnant on Prozac is the first guide to clearly spell out both the possible risks of antidepressant use―whether Prozac, Wellbutrin, or another drug―by expectant (or new) mothers, as well as the lesser-known but no less serious risks to both fetus and mother from untreated depression. Taking a pull-no-punches and yet nonjudgmental approach, Dr. Shoshana Bennett addresses:
The controversy: Does the media exaggerate the risk?
The experts: finding and gathering your medical support team
Alternative treatments: acupuncture, cognitive behavioral therapy, relaxation techniques, and nutrition
The myths: Do pregnancy hormones protect women from depression?
FAQs: Will I be able to breastfeed? Will I pass my depression (or anxiety, or OCD) on to my child?
Communication: How to talk to family and friends about this issue
