risks for infant abnormalities while taking psychotropics. The methods used from the case

not affect the baby or mother. Many pregnant women choose to continue taking medication to
stabilize their symptoms of bipolar disorder. Because the risks of exacerbating symptoms linked
to pregnancy. The outcome of how to treat pregnant women with bipolar disorder is still being
researched. There is still more research and education needed to find a solution.
