Protect Your Baby
We are the parents of Matthew. We never expected this to happen since antidepressants are labeled as “safe” to use even while pregnanty. The 5 pregnancies on this safe drug, Effexor, all had problems. Even my pregnancies got more difficult. We miscarried our first child. Our second and fourth had a “harmless” heart murmur. Our third was born with a very low birth weight and severe breathing problems needing emergency care and 10 days in an incubator pumping him oxygen. And now at 4 and a half, he still gets cyanotic. And our last, Matthew, who’s autopsy showed him perfect. Except he couldn’t absorb oxygen and went into cardiac arrest and died within a couple of hours of birth. These “safe” drugs are far from safe and people need to know the facts.
