Does Baby Always Have Problems When Mother Does Drugs?
Have you ever known anyone who did drugs during their pregnancy. and what was the out come for the baby. I know the baby can have a lot of problems. but was wondering if this is always the case. is it possible for mother to do drugs, and baby turns out fine. just curious.
It is very possible for the baby to turn out fine, it actually happens a lot. I know many people that have done drugs during their pregnancy and their children are completely normal/healthy. I also know people that did drugs during their pregnancy and their babies are not completely normal/healthy. One of my friends (kind of a friend…more like family friend) did opiates, suboxone, and was prescribed subutex during her pregnancy with her son and he is now a few months away from turning three and only says four words. She refuses to get him checked for developmental problems and speech problems but I’m like 98% sure that he is autistic. He is very violent towards animals, gets very angry over little things and won’t give up on things like a normal kid would (i.e- he was playing with this model car that had two seats in the front with doors that opened and he was putting mighty beans into the seats but was getting VERY angry because only two mighty beans would fit….he spent like 15 minutes trying to fit more mighty beans into that car and would have continued to try if I hadn’t taken it away from him. The poor kid was clenching his fists and huffing and puffing over something that a normal kid his age wouldn’t have cared about after the first or second try!), he is also very smart and remembers EVERYTHING but won’t talk no matter how much you try and make him. If you are addicted to drugs, there are programs out there for pregnant women that will help you safely get off of them or they will put you on a maintenance medication like subutex or methadone. I’m talking more along the lines of opiates and pills and stuff. Meth and coke are a totally different story and you rarely hear about a baby coming out even close to healthy when the mother does either of those drugs during her pregnancy.
