    A summary of the debate regarding the safety of antidepressants in pregnancy is presented through the story of Prozac Baby. This is a diary of a fetus who finds out (to his horror) that his mother intends to abort him due to misinformation she has received. The novel, Prozac Baby, was written by Dr. Gideon Koren, based on his experience at Motherisk. An update on the risks of alcohol in pregnancy is also provided.
