Well, SSRIS are linked to cardiac malformations (especially paroxetine) in babies. That's not a nature-nurture situation. It's the drug. For women, SSRIs do pass through the placenta. SSRI withdrawal in babies is well known (search pubmed). The babies often cry more than usual and are difficult to console. The serotonergic neurons are literally developing in the presence of the drug (~80% inhibition of the serotonin transporter) and then BAM it's gone. That's a pretty sh*tty way to enter the world. The baby can't exactly go online to the paxil withdrawal survivors newsgroup for consolation. Sorry I'm just tired of selfish people putting their mental health ahead of their children's.
