We're 2 years away from even deciding if we want another baby, let alone anywhere near ttc, so this hypothetical is more just for conversation's sake.
In Ontario homebirth is contraindicated if the mother is on anti-depressant/anxiety meds.
NEONATAL SIDE EFFECTS: Restlessness, hypertonia, jitteriness, irritability and poor feeding, as well as mild respiratory distress.
It's not cut and dry the seriousness of these effects and likely can be variable. SSRI's are a class C, which puts them in 'benefits for mom outweigh risks to fetus' category, for the most part. Especially in low dose.
So, for you homebirthers, would you opt to discontinue SSRI's, birth in hospital or continue SSRI's and make an informed choice to remain at home?
