To those responsible for pushing Effexor on Christian and similar drugs on pregnant women across America, that may be “impossible” to prove. Only with that mindset of denial could someone justify pushing for the passage of federal legislation called “The MOTHERS Act,” which would increase the use of psychotropic drugs in pregnant and new mothers. In 2007 Delahunty approached her doctor about whether she should stop taking Effexor because she wanted one more baby. He told her, “Oh no, you and the baby will be fine. There are no studies that prove that the Effexor is even transferred to the baby in utero or in the breast milk.” “Milk-to-plasma ratios” greater than 1 indicate that a medication is present in higher concentrations in breast milk than in maternal serum. Effexor’s milk-to-plasma ratio has been observed at over 4.7 and is therefore not recommended for breastfeeding. Neonates cannot metabolize drugs as quickly as older babies or adults, they absorb more of the drug, and can have 10 to 30 times higher brain tissue concentrations than adults

    OMG THAT PISSES ME OFF! so freakin bad. it’s amazing how the FDA will approve something like this, and yet how trusting people are of the FDA. look at all the dangerous chemicals in vaccines! I was induced with my son with cytotec and it says specifically on the label, do NOT use at any stage in pregnancy, is known to cause miscarriages.. !! yet 4 years ago it was used on me. I’m so blessed my child was relatively unharmed by that drug.

    OMG! I am so sorry. My daughter Jasmine died at 4 months old from severe complications of the heart. 4 months of heart surgeries and her life spent in the hospital, sometimes being unable to hold her due to the wires and lines attached to her. I was taking Ativan and had no idea what it could do. I play this song too and think of my beautiful Angel.

    OMG… This must have been so hard to put together and put on here. Thank you for sharing it though. There are so many pregnant women that need to know the dangers that doctors won’t tell you or don’t do the research to find out. My last baby had a 2 vessel cord instead of a 3 vessel cord and low amniotic fluid due to taking Paxil while pregnant. The doctor told me it was ok but it wasn’t. Luckily for me he is 6 yrs old and as healthy as can be but it could have been a tragedy. Again, thank you.

    OMG such a beautiful baby … my heart goes out to your family… she was most definitely surrounded by love…… may God bless you and your family

    This scares me to death. So much can go wrong. I’m not sure if I’d want to try to have kids because I don’t think I could stand such a loss. I am terribly sorry.

    I am so sorry for your loss, she was a beautiful little girl. I bawled my eyes out, very touching. I have a 2 1/2 month little girl.. I know antidepressants are deadly, but have you thought about the vaccines? My husband and I have done so much research on them we chose to opt out with our 3rd child… Everything is a tough decision for use parents because all we want is the best for our little ones.. Truly she was a sweet little baby

    My 5 year old Son saw baby Indiana on the video & says aw the baby I love the baby!Im 20 weeks pregnant with baby no 4. & decided not to use medicated nasal sprays while I have the flu. I heard some nasal sprays (not the saline sprays) can cause club feet in unborn babies. Theres a website called safefetusdotcom that shows what stuff is safe and what stuff is potentially risky or harmful in pregnancy.

    I’m very, very sorry for your loss. This is why I am strictly against prescription medications including anti-depressants. Unfortunately the drug companies that are supposed to be “helping” us only care about money, just like our corrupt government. Again I’m very sorry for your loss.

    I am sat here crying and feeling so terribly guilty. I took many meds during my pregnancy and was told ” don’t worry, it’s just drug companies covering their backs” when I asked about warnings on packs. My daughter ended up in NCU for many weeks. The nurses their treated me like a drug addict and gave me no help, just nasty comments.I was stupid and trusted the Dr’s. I got lucky and my little girl is 2 now. I am so very sorry for your families loss and I send you my prayers and much love XX
