Anxiety during pregnancy causes depression in older mothers

Posted on February 29th, 2012 No Comments

Research done by PhD students at the University of British Columbia shows that mothers are more likely to go through depression if they give birth at a later age.

Women who give birth between the ages of 40 and 44 are five times more likely to develop depression than younger women. These high odds are caused by the extra anxiety that older mothers experience during their pregnancy. This added anxiety could be caused by stress when dealing with their work situation, and also not having as many friends going through the same experience as them.

Data was collected on 8,000 women after they took a survey following the birth of their children. Based on the findings from the survey, the depression rate decreases in young mothers, and then begins to climb drastically in the late 30s.

Zoloft is an anti-depression drug that could cause serious birth defects in a child if taken during pregnancy. If you were taking Zoloft while pregnant, and your child was born with a birth defect, please contact the Zoloft lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810 today.
