A just published article (Clin OBGYN, 52(3):469-482) concludes: "The decision to expose the fetus to anti-depressant medication during pregnancy must be weighed against the risks of untreated maternal depression to both mother and fetus." Precisely the same orientation should apply to treatment of opioid dependent pregnant women, but in those cases all too many judges and probation officers and child welcome authorities and others (including some physicians!!!!) have only one position: JUST SAY NO TO METHADONE!
