the Psychiatry Advisor take:
When post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms were combined with a major depressive episode (MDE), the risk of preterm birth for a increased four-fold, according to research.
While prior research has shown that women who took antidepressants and benzodiazepines had higher risk of a preterm delivery, the risk associated with PTSD and a major depressive episode (OR 4.08, 95% CI: 1.27-13.15) is separate from that.
Researchers also found that pregnant women taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) had a higher risk of preterm birth. The same was true for those who had experienced an earlier preterm birth.
