(CBS) - A new study from Northwestern medicine finds pregnant women who take an antidepressant are not stunting their infant's growth. Researchers say babies born to mothers taking an anti-depressant had similar weight, length and head circumference over the first year compared to babies born to women not taking an anti-depressant. The study also found infants born to depressed moms not taking anti-depressants were similar in size to most infants. Previous data suggested babies of depressed moms had diminished growth.
