I have, for a long time, believed that psychiatric drug use during pregnancy could be behind the rise in autism incidence. There is no evidence for vaccines causing autism, but there is (as you mention) some evidence that SSRIs increase the risk.

Use of SSRIs (and other antidepressants) skyrocketed during the 90's and 2000's, and many pregnant patients take them under the assumption that they're safe.

As as ide note, newborns experience SSRI withdrawal. I find it infuriating that a mother doesn't want to stop an SSRI because the withdrawal is too difficult, yet have zero problem subjecting their newborn offspring to this horrendous experience as their first experience into the world. Then, of course, not to mention the effects on neurodevelopment, when your synapses are literally forming around floods of serotonin.
