Like other antidepressants, Zoloft should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.

In a retrospective case-control study of 377 women whose infants were born with PPHN and 836 women whose infants were born healthy, the risk for developing PPHN was approximately six-fold higher for infants exposed to SSRIs after the 20th week of gestation compared to infants who had not been exposed to antidepressants during pregnancy.

Women who are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or who are breastfeeding should not take Zoloft or any antidepressant without consulting their doctor and weighing the risks.

Babies exposed to Zoloft and other SSRIs during the third trimester have developed complications requiring prolonged hospitalization, respiratory support, and tube feeding. These findings are based on post-marketing reports.
