In brief: Psychotherapy
Is the first line of treatment for depression, particularly mild to moderate depression.
However, you must understand that everything in life is a risk vs benefit analysis. Depression also can have negative consequences for the baby and certainly severe depression with changes in sleep, appetite and energy is likely to have negative effects for the baby.
