Is there an anti-depressant I can use while I am pregnant?

Hi,
I have a 3 month old son and have just recently found out I am 5 weeks pregnant. My partner has a 7 year old from a previous relationship and just recently he has made some serious accusations about my 3 yr old niece. I know its only early stages of my pregnancy but I feel stressed and down all the time and I am really worried about the affect it can have on my unborn child. Is there anti-depressants I can use while I am pregnant?

Answer: Hi, You need to talk to your GP about some possible advice and treatment. There is a lot of help available but you do have to seek assistance through your GP. Best wishes, Alex
