Can you control depression during pregnancy?

Yes: Hormones do a lot of wacky things to women in pregnancy...Depression can improve or worsen. Some meds are not helpful to the baby ...But you still need help. .Craniosacral therapy, homeopathy, and acupuncture/chinese medicine can have amazing effects and are all safe during pregnancy. They can all treat depression during pregnancy (and even if not pregnant).

Yes: Also discuss your symptoms and concerns with your ob. You do not have to "just live with it".

Can happen: Please let your gynecologist know. The two of you can determine if medications are appropriate. There are non-medication options like cognitive behavioral therapy or acupuncture to treat depression.
