In brief: Usually

This is a risk-benefit decision must be made between yourself and your physician.
The risk varies by antidepressant, but the majority of the data indicate many antidepressants are likely safe in pregnancy. A resource that puts this into context is: http://www.Womensmentalhealth.Org/specialty-clinics/psychiatric-disorders-during-pregnancy/.

In brief: Yes

Antidepressants are risky in pregnancy, but some are less than others.
When choosing a ssri for example some are category b, others are c thus carrying a high risk of fetal injury. The counterpoint is the seriousness and importance of treating depression and more importantly post-partum depression which can imperil mom and baby.
