A much bigger study, and numerous other studies, none of which prove causation, only relationship, showed no increased risk. The risk of untreated depression and anxiety in pregnancy is clearly proven. The increased risk of autism, if it even exists as a result of SSRI’s, is tiny, even if double the risk in untreated women

Note from the managing editor: Thanks for your email. Before responding,  I would appreciate seeing any studies you can provide showing the causes of depression and anxiety in pregnancy.
