Zoloft — The Bump
3rd Trimester

Zoloft

Has anyone been on Zoloft during previous pregnancies? Did you continue to take it up until labor? 
My mother and MIL will probably be in the delivery room and I don’t think it’s any of their business that I am taking the medicine. Will it be something discussed during labor?

    If you dont want medical info being shared with others, dont have them in there.
    The only time it will be brought up is during admission,  and talking with the anesthesiologist if you get an epidural, but you can not be 100% sure that a nurse, resident, doctor, etc won't bring up. If it becomes an emergent and you are being rushed to OR for a c-section,  it may get thrown out there.

    Yup, stayed on 50 mg/day during my previous pregnancy and will do the same this time. After pregnancy I upped it to 100-150mg/day because post partum can be ROUGH. 

    The only time it was brought up during labor was, like @[email protected] said, during admission and talking to the anesthesiologist. Then my nurse asked about it after labor, just to see if I'd brought my own prescription or needed her to provide some. Medical staff do their best to keep your medical information confidential, but with labor things can move quickly and their priority is to keep you safe. So, they may sacrifice your confidentiality to ensure that they don't give you something that would be contraindicated to your current medication.

    I realize that OP has likely ghosted this thread...but i find it pretty odd that she is willing to have her mother and MIL watch a human being emerge from her mostly naked body, yet doesn't think it is their business what medications she is taking as prescribed by a medical doctor.  Like...i feel like if they're not close enough to know your medical history, they're not close enough to be in the delivery room while you are pushing out a kid?
     
    Full disclaimer though, i find it odd whenever someone wants to essentially make a show of giving birth...that's a moment for the parents and possibly one other support person.  Every grandparent doesn't need to be there.  I would have been weirded out for either my mother or MIL to be there when i was grunting out one of my kids, and they are lovely women who i am close to and have no issue discussing my medical history with.  Can't they just be invited into the room after the fact?  I feel like their relationships with their grandchild will not suffer if they have to meet it like a whole 30 minutes after it emerges from the womb.
     
    And just in case - OP, yes, it is possible that your medical history will come up when you are in the middle of undergoing a medical procedure like giving birth.  So keep that in mind as you decide who should be in the room with you.
