There are no teratogenic antidepressants, as far as I have discovered, and I looked really hard for the answer.

Here are two links to posts on the subject of antidepressants in pregnancy. The first one has links to a draft review I did. In it, the references are all hotlinked to Pubmed, if you want to verify anything, or expand on what I describe. The second link has a link to an article written by Dr. Koren, the long-time head of the Hospital for Sick Children's Motherisk Program. Motherisk seeks out all information on potential toxic risks during pregnancy. See:

Good luck on your blessed event, even if it is still a twinkle in your eye.
