Effects of drug abuse During Pregnancy

An estimated 4 percent of pregnant women in the United States admit to illicit drug use during pregnancy, according to the March of Dimes. Perinatal substance abuse is a public health problem with complex issues and enormous social costs. Not all drug use should be stopped abruptly during pregnancy: there may be less harmful effects from weaning off slowly under medical supervision. Particularly from opioid drugs. Early intervention and treatment can have a positive impact on outcomes, which can be negative due to the many side effects.

Effects on Fetal and Neonatal Health

The most common effects of all types of maternal drug abuse in pregnancy loss. Methamphetamine, ecstasy and cocaine have effects on the fetal development to the effects of tobacco use. Constricted blood circulation and oxygen deprivation may lead to limb reduction deformities, spontaneous abortion in the first trimester, miscarriage in the later pregnancy, or possible stillbirth. Effects on the placenta cause it to harden, or calcify, which may lead to preterm birth. Premature babies are at risk of respiratory distress, jaundice, infections and developmental delays.

Drug affected babies are at increased risk of sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), especially between 4 and 10 months of age. The extent of the learning disabilities and behavior problems due to prenatal exposure may not be apparent until the child starts school. The national institute of Drug Abuse’s long-term study found that cocaine-exposed children are more likely to require special education services than non-exposed peers.

When mothers try to quit heroin use during the first trimester of pregnancy, withdrawal symptoms increase the risk of pregnancy loss. Withdrawal symptoms in the final weeks of pregnancy may trigger preterm labor. For this reason, it is always best for a pregnant individual to be under the supervision of a doctor while tapering off of an opiate.
