Electroconvulsive therapy in a twin pregnancy: a case report


, : Electroconvulsive therapy in a twin pregnancy: a case report. American Journal of Perinatology 11(2): 116-118

We present a case of twin gestation complicated by severe depression and psychotic behavior; the mother was treated with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). She had received multiple medications for treatment of her depression earlier during the first part of the pregnancy. However, frequent use of ECT later in the course of pregnancy did not result in adverse fetal outcome as is evident from normal fetal surveillance tests. We conclude that, when indicated, ECT during pregnancy improves maternal condition and does not adversely affect fetal well-being.
