Excerpt from Different Types of Depression
Management of Depression during Pregnancy

Exercise, proper nutrition and adequate rest are some of the strategies you can use to relieve the symptoms of depression. Pregnant women are encouraged to get enough exercise and rest in order to manage their moods and prevent the development of chronic depression. Chronic or severe depression requires the intervention of a qualified professional.

Psychotherapy is one of the popular treatments for depression. The patient is thoroughly interviewed to determine all the risk factors involved then an appropriate therapy and perhaps some medication is prescribed.

The mental health practitioner works hand in hand with the obstetrician to determine the best antidepressant for the patient. This is because antidepressants may have adverse effects on the unborn baby and can even lead to congenital malfunctions. Other maternal complications such as gestational diabetes may also be triggered by the use of antidepressant therapy.

It is important while pregnant to watch out for the physical symptoms of depression and take the most appropriate actions in order to prevent further complications for the mother as well as the child.
