What are the side effects of taking medications for depression relating to pregnancy?

While medications, such as antidepressants, can be effective in reducing symptoms of both depression and anxiety, they may also have a negative effect on the baby's development and the mother's well-being. However, all medications are prescribed with caution to limit potential side effects to the unborn baby or newborn baby.
