Because SSRIs have a similar side effect profile generally, we are investigating whether or not other antidepressants cause the same birth defects. We represent many families whose children have heart birth defects or PPHN where their mothers were on an antidepressant during pregnancy.

Some of the birth defects our clients’ children have include:

  • Cardiac (heart) defects
  • Pulmonary (lung) defects
  • Neural-tube defects (brain and spinal cord)
  • Craniosynostosis (skull defect)
  • Infant omphalocele (abdominal wall defects)
  • Club foot (one or both feet turn downward and inward)
  • Anal atresia (complete or partial closure of the anus)
  • Cleft lip and cleft palate

If your baby was born with birth defects or PPHN and you took an antidepressant
during your pregnancy, a lawyer may be able to help you.

Baum Hedlund is investigating whether other antidepressant drugs cause PPHN and birth defects as well. In our representation of our clients, we dig deep into drug company files to discover the truth about what the company knew about the drug’s risks, when the company knew of those risks and what efforts, if any, the company took to hide those risks. Only through legal action can anyone gain access to this information. We fight hard to get this information into the public domain to prevent others from having to endure similar tragedies.
