Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq) like most antidepressants are ok for pregnancy during the first two trimesters if the benefits outweigh the risks.

There are no controlled studies done to report clinical findings only the experience of other women and their baby's birth and health afterward. To read more about this topic go to:

Just adding my 5 cents worth, I found that my psych issues went into 'remission' during my two pregnancies, so I didn't even take an aspirin during that 7 years... then symptoms returned. My OB suggested that I try to endure during that time, it was, without a doubt, the happiest time of my life. A lot has changed in 27 years. I would clear all meds with my baby doc. He is the authority in all matters regarding your pregnancy.
There you have it.
Peace and happy baby,
