Causative?: I have never heard that adhd causes a pregnant woman to be depressed. Depression can however be associated with adhd (but doesn't have to be).

Yes: Adhd often occurs with depression, anxiety, and compulsive behaviors. Frustration rises in attention disorders. This can easily result in mood, anxiety, and ineffective coping behaviors.
