Being pregnant is not easy as one more life gets joined and the safety needed to be taken gets double. Complications are commonly seen in women who are pregnant these days. Ladies who are facing depression and anxiety problems should be very careful as the internal and external brain activity of the newborn gets affected to a great extent.
A number of fetal developmentals is the major complication seen these days. Babies are getting born prematurely and dis –abled with low brain functioning and other problems. According to a new study, Antidepressant use during pregnancy has been said to affect the brain of the child in pregnant women.
The effects of drugs on fetal brain development should be examined more carefully and non-pharmacological interventions should be the first treatment for depression and anxiety during the pregnancy phase.
Yes, it is true that the brain only forms in the womb and is said to function after born between 0-5 years. But, proper formation of the brain is necessary and Sampsa Vanhatalo of the Helsinki University Hospital says,” We found many changes in the brain activity of SRI-exposed newborns.” All this is caused because of the side effect of material drug treatment used for the antidepressant for pregnant ladies.
The basic study was done to examine the effect of SRI exposure on the new born baby’s brain activity. As per the research, 22 ladies using SRI medication and 62 ladies without medication were aimed at seeing how fetal SRI drug results in low brain activity of newborns.
Vanhatalo adds saying,” We hope that our study will facilitate the current international discussion and search for effective alternatives in the treatment of depression and anxiety during pregnancy.” It is advisable to be doubling sure and careful during pregnancy.
