What's a simple, cheap treatment for my depression in pregnancy?

Dr. Barbara A Majeroni
Specializes in Family Medicine
Therapy: Find a therapist who does cognitive- behavioral therapy. It is safer than drugs during pregnancy.
Dr. Marilynn Frederiksen

Depression: One way to treat depression during pregnancy is to get regular exercise.
Dr. Chevies Newman
Obstetrics and Gynecology 22 years experience
Med regimen: Depending on your situation, and I am a proponent of medical treatment in pregnancy, sertraline 100mg 1/2 at night with trazadone 100 mg 1/2 at night. Risk is very low. Therapy is great if u find a good therapist and have the time. See mass general womens psychiatry to look up risks but they r low compared to the risk of non treatment.
