Studies show that using drugs -- legal or illegal -- during pregnancy has a direct impact on the fetus . If you smoke, drink alcohol, or ingest caffeine , so does the fetus . If you use marijuana or crystal meth , your fetus also feels the impact of these dangerous drugs. And if you are addicted to cocaine you are not only putting your own life on the line, but you are risking the health of your unborn baby.. The consequences of using cocaine include heart attacks , respiratory failure, strokes, and seizures . And these life-threatening health problems can also be passed to an unborn baby.

MARIJUANA Smoking marijuana increases the levels of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide in the blood, which reduces the oxygen supply to the baby. Smoking marijuana during pregnancy can increase the chance of miscarriage , low birth weight, premature births, developmental delays, and behavioral and learning problems.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
