I have a history of depression and a family history. I spent seven years in treatment and learned how to cope with it without medication after a med happy psychiatrist convinced my parents to put me on 17 different medications for depression and anxiety at the same time. For the last 6 years I've been reluctant to consider medication, but between taking care of my LO who is six months and being pregnant and helping to care for my elderly grandmother I'm having a harder time coping with depression. I'm scheduled to see my obgyn next month and an planning on bringing it up, but would live to hear some of your experienced coping with depression during a pregnancy.
