First evaluation: First see a psychiatrist for an evaluation. Therapy may be all you need. If meds are necessary, the psychiatrist will discus with you the risks and benefits.

Depression: Depression in pregnancy can be treated with ssri's, tricyclic antidepressants, or some newer atypical medications. Important also is a therapist. It helps to talk with someone about your feelings. A therapist can monitor your progress during pregnancy and help with adjustments after pregnancy. A therapist can also monitor you post-partum and intervene if depression becomes worse.
