Is it safe to become pregnant, having anxiety disorder? I don't even want to try, if the baby may be unhealthy. I also don't want to be on any meds. while pregnant. What do you think guys, should I try, or no?
I agree with Joy. You should discuss this with your own doctor. Not wanting to be on meds to control your anxiety will limit your options while pregnant - you shouldnt dismiss this option without first talking to a doctor about it.
I posted earlier but my post went away..sorry if you are seeing duplicates.
I have an anxiety disorder and weaned myself off meds with the help of a doc a year before trying for a baby. I have been calm so far because of good care and support system throughout a 32-week pregnancy.
Mom's anxiety may cause ADHD and other problems in babies. It's important to make this decision with a mental health professional. Good luck--
