Tobacco affect the baby at the same way it affects the mother orworse, because the health of the baby depend on what the motherconsume.
I am a school teacher teaching kindergarteners whose mothers have taken meth and they were born addicted to it, and YES!!!!!!!!!! OMG, it does affect them. If you are pregnan…t, stop using, do it for your baby. Think of the selfishness you are doing to a poor little baby. If you do not want your baby please give it up for adoption and do not raise your baby with drugs. The students in the past and present are so far behind all the other students,,it is so sad.
bleeding everyday can causes u to lose a baby
No. Although heroin may cause miscarriages if pregnant women abuse it too often or too much, a father's sperm cell will not be affected in any way by heroin (though his sperm …count may be), because heroin breaks down in the body into morphine and 6-monoacetylmorphine (6-MAM). Morphine is a naturally occurring endorphin and can be found in the brain in small amounts along with other endorphins, so really all Heroin does is increase the amount of a chemical the brain is already used to. The resulting addiction and physical effects of heroin ingestion (heroin only, this does not apply to adulterants) are simply due to the body reacting to increased levels of Morphine.
Gonorrhoea demands immediate attention in females. It can be easily cured by single dose of injection ceftriaxone one gram IV, single dose. As such it does not affect the unbo…rn child.

Pelvic inflammatory disease can be diagnosed and treated before or during pregnancy also. So it should not affect your pregnancy adversely.
Amphetamines are considered unsafe to use in pregnancy and while there is limited medical evidence of the consequences of using amphetamine type stimulant drugs during pregnan…cy, the following effects have been described: . Reduced blood flow caused by narrowing of the blood vessels 2,limiting oxygen and nutrient supply to your unborn baby and resulting in reduced growth and head circumference. . Antepartum bleeding conditions. . Behaviour and learning difficulties in children who were exposed in utero. . Other medical evidence suggests the drugs may cause pregnancy complications including miscarriage and early labour; an increased risk of fetal abnormalities (i.e. heart abnormalities); altered fetal nervous system as the drug acts as a stressor to baby and alteration of (baby) brain structure and development.
Various drugs have side effects. If you are taking drugs that you are supposed to, then these may have side effects on the unborn fetus. They may be worse because it is much s…maller and the effects more of a problem. Always talk to the doctor. If these are drugs that you should not be taking either, the effect will again be much worse for the fetus. It may have major defects and be born early or stillborn.
No, but I've herd about cat's pee or poop (i don't remember what one) having negative affects on unborn and newborn baby's. best to have someone else scoop the litter box
Of course it does. Any drug will affect an unborn child. Drugs are extrememly harmful to YOUR body in the first place. Drugs get into your blood stream, which is directly conn…ected to the fetus through the umbilical cord. The fetus absorbs the nutrients in the blood stream, which also contains the drugs and chemicals. Either way, don't do drugs. Especially if your pregnant.
There is strong experimental evidence that it causes fetal death (abortive), stillbirths, and stunted development. Some researchers found that the dosage (high or low) was not… an element of the level or frequency of malformation or mortality. Any use is dangerous.
it is addicted to herione and u ruin the babys life
A heroin addiction is extremely powerful. If you are pregnant and addicted to H you need to see if you can get into a methadone treatment facility IMMEDIATELY. This is NOT a j…oke. That baby is at serious risk if not given the proper care, preventative treatment and supervision. You need to tell your dr/dr's *(if you have one) what is going on. If you do not have a dr or clinic you need to find one. When the baby is born and tested for drugs if that test comes back positive they are required by law to notify child protective services. However, if you are in a methadone treatment and/or maintenance program CPS will simply oversee your case (in most cases) and ensure that you are helping to wean the infant off of the drugs. Heroin is very addictive and they will typically have to place the infant on methadone or phenobarbital to wean them, sometimes they have to use morphine, fentenyl and or other combinations to ease the babies symptoms. Some infants will have to remain in the hospital until they are totally weaned off the highly controlled drugs (morphine, fentenyl, methadone- depends on the hospital and dr). Most babies are prone to screaming fits that can last minutes to hours depending on the addiction and prevention that was taken. Their little bodies can lock up while they are screaming, this is due to the withdrawals. Even on powerful drugs to help them withdrawal they are still vunerable to withdrawal symptoms. Imagine how miserable you feel with you start to go off the heroin? Imagine that in a little body of only 5-9 pounds? The baby can also have a very low birth weight and (from experience) I have seen a lot of cases where the fluid drops to drastically low levels, which is why it is so important to have a dr. Remember if you go to a methadone clinic you are being proactive and this will be looked upon with favor by a court of law and/or dr./clinic because you are trying to help your precious little one without being forced to help them. I wish you all of the best
Marijuana has no addictive properties and is used to treat addiction. So far, no negative side effects have been reported in hundreds of thousands of years of humans using it.… There are no health risks to worry about.
