    I think chronic anxiety and high stress is equally detrimental to a babies development, as is risking a major depressive episode post-birth, or during pregnancy while caring for older children. It is a matter of assessing each individual circumstance.
    Hi jumpinginpuddles

    How did you go weaning off? I am on lexapro for GAD and plan to ttc in January 2014. My doctor is aware and we will have a full plan in place to ease off it. Just wondering how you went?

    I am 9 weeks pregnant and I feel fantastic! No better feeling, and there's no doubt in my mind that my medication is helping so glad I decided to stay on it
