I have asked about depression during pregnancy before. I have not yet seen a doctor about my suicidal feelings because I am scared my baby will be taken away. What will happen if I go to the hospital now and tell them I\'m feeling suicidal while pregnant?
Welcome to ehealthforum,

You will be prescribed safe medications to help you take care of yourself and baby well and continue with pregnancy smoothly. Do not delay in visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
