|The most commonly observed symptoms were tremor, increased muscle tone, sleep disruption, gastrointestinal disturbance and high-pitched crying. In the infants who exhibited severe symptoms, the symptoms were most severe within 2 days after birth. No infants with symptoms required any specific medical treatment.|

Where exactly do these percentages come from? In all of my reading (I'm on an SSRI), I've yet to come across any real hard facts. Mostly just anecdotal evidence here and there which all points to little of concern. Now, I'm sure some of it depends on what exactly you're taking, but I know my midwives were 100% not concerned. And my therapist supports me as well (though different than a pdoc, I suppose).
I also agree that I'd like to know WHAT exactly is the concern. Maybe he's really worried about you (the "good night's sleep" comment and all, which is a "yeah right" no matter where you birth). In which case, wouldn't you be more comfortable at home? I'm not trying to persuade you here, but that's just where my thought process went. You just have to do what you think is right.
