||Marijuana, You & Your Baby
Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug during pregnancy. Use is as high as 3% to 30% in various populations. Many women assume that because its use has now been legalized in some US states, marijuana is harmless to their fetus or infant. But marijuana still goes through the placenta and the mother’s milk. The bigger questions are: How much is too much? What are the negative effects, and how long do they last? If you don’t tell the doctor you’ve smoked some pot, will he know? Does it matter whether the marijuana is used for recreational or medicinal purposes? Is it okay to use topical creams or cookies that contain marijuana when breastfeeding? Under what circumstances might it be better to breastfeed, even if you’ve been exposed to marijuana? Marie speaks with neonatologist Dr. Isabel Basaldu-Prado to get these answers and more.
