Starting a family is supposed to be a joyous occasion. It’s also one of the scariest, especially for first time parents. We immediately check for 10 tiny fingers, 10 little toes and wait for that first cry. It’s a feeling that people who aren’t parents can’t possibly understand.
So, what happens if your son or daughter was born with a birth defect?
There was a time when doctors were prescribing anti-depressants to soon-to-be mothers. Since 1997, drugs like Paxil and Prozac were marketed to doctors as anti-depressants with few side effects on un-born children of pregnant women. We now know that these drugs can cause severe birth defects in children born to women who took them while they were pregnant.
What can you do? First, you need to understand this: It’s not your fault. It’s the single thing I hear from mothers over and over again. It’s a feeling that is hard to avoid, but I am here to tell you again, it’s not your fault. The manufacturer of any medication has a legal responsibility to educate the healthcare professionals they are marketing to (your doctors) of the risks associated with them, all of the risks. They have a legal duty to label their products truthfully and completely.
