One-Third of Mother’s Prozac Transferred to Baby via Umbilical Cord

October 25, 2011

A recent study of the effects of Prozac (sertraline) on babies in the wombs of pregnant mothers found that fetal exposure to sertraline was approximately one-third of maternal exposure. Similar to the way that fetuses are affected by a pregnant woman’s ingestion of alcohol, mothers who continue to take Prozac (sertraline) during pregnancy expose their unborn children to significant amounts of this dangerous drug.

 

Prozac and other SSRIs, particularly when consumed during the first trimester, have been known to increase the risk of a series of birth defects which include such ailments as anal atresia, limb reduction, and omphalocele.
