Most likely, you know that using street drugs while trying to get pregnant or while pregnant can have negative affects on you and your baby.  We want to get you the information, resources, and help you need to give you at your baby the best chance to be healthy. Right from the start.  

What are street drugs?

Street drugs are also referred to as illicit or illegal drugs.  According to the March of Dimes, street drugs include:

What can drugs do...

To your pregnancy:

  • Infertility

  • Problems with the placenta

  • Preterm labor

  • Miscarriage

  • Stillbirth

To your baby:

  • Premature or low-birth weight

  • Heart problems

  • Birth defects

  • Infections

  • Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (when baby goes through withdrawal after birth)

Long-term effects on your child

The effects of drug-use during pregnancy can affect your child for the rest of their life.  Using drugs during pregnancy increases the chance of your child experiencing:

  • SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)

  • Slower than normal growth and development

  • Behavior problems 

  • Learning problems

What about marijuana?

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) warns that marijuana use during pregnancy can harm your baby.  Although there is more research needed, it is clear that the THC in this drug passes through your system and into your baby, which can negatively affect  development.  

For more information, see the March of Dimes section on Marijuana and Pregnancy.
