Antidepressants Not Linked to Stillbirths

A mother's use of antidepressants like Prozac during pregnancy does not increase the risk of stillbirth or infant mortality, according to a study in The Journal of the American Medical Association. 

The reason for the association between antidepressants and stillbirths may have been the psychiatric illness of depression itself, rather than the treatment with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or S.S.R.I.'s.

The rate of stillbirths and deaths under age 1 was higher among women who used S.S.R.I.'s than the population at large, but those differences disappeared after the researchers adjusted for previous hospitalization for depression and other factors. Read the full details here:

Antidepressants Not Linked to Stillbirths

There are many causes of stillbirth, birth trauma and cerebral palsy. Some are medication related and others are due to the physicians or nurses failing to detect abnormalities in fetal heart tones and failing to deliver a baby timely via C-section.

If you believe your child was harmed due to a birth injury, contact the offices of Crandall & Pera Law today for a free case evaluation.
