I'm curious - and before all of you start trash talking do some research so you don't make yourself look stupid - do they drug test mother and baby at the hospital? my friend is having a baby she was going to quit at the beginning of her 3rd trimester but she keeps throwing up when she tries and no other nausea medication is working. So if she goes into labor early will they drug test her and the baby? she doesn't do anything else she doesn't smoke cig or anything she just is really really sick and pregnant and weed is all that's helped

Well, weed is actually healthy for the baby. I did my research. Its better to smoke weed than cigs. No they do not drug test you. In order to drug test someone you have to have permission you can't just do it. You can actually sue someone if they drug test you without permission.

MCH does not drug every mother and child. Only if there is suspicion. It has to be ordered by the doctor and consent does not have to be given. Pink Sparkle doesn't know what it is talking about.

I have however been witness to times when the hospital has broken the law. They broke man's law, God's law, Ken's law, Murphy's law...law and order.

I get drug tested every time I go to the baby doctor. I started with conaster and now I go to madisonville. The paper they give says they do drug screening on every visit. I was smoking weed before I found out I was pregnant. I don't know if they would do anything about it if I did fail my first drug test. I haven't smoked any since then.

They use to drug test every mom. Social Service got so backed up with all the meth babies they quit doing it. Can't wait to see all the brain damaged kids in about 15/20 years from now. Need to start on a BIG prison extension now so we'll be ready. Trash only breeds more trash.

There is no OB department because there is no Dr to put them there! Idiot. I think they should drug test! Just because momma likes something doesn't mean she should introduce that crap to the innocent baby! Time to grow up and act like a parent, don't ya think?

well i quit smoking a few days ago and i'm starting to think that maybe smoking for the nausea was making it worse like my body wasnt coping with the nausea because it was letting the weed do it for me or something? but i've never done anything besides smoke weed anyways so none of the other stuff pertains to me but i love my babies and i'd hate for something to happen to me legally i think it's a miracle drug personally but it is illegal and i have to remember that. not everyone can self medicate with it i know some people get really bad off on it and thats why a lot of places see it as a problem but i'm having the baby in madisonville so hopefully i don't go into labor in the next 3 weeks or so and i'm clean by then

I am a nurse and I've seen babies taken by CPS if the mom is positive for drugs. This mom was positive for meth. It should be like that regardless of what your poison is. If your baby is born and has horrible withdrawals from drugs, how would that make you feel?
yessssss

every baby and every mother is drug tested at the time of the babies birth !! i know for a fact cause i have a friend dealing with it all right now her baby had traces of weed in her system and so did the mother and she is going through court and dealing with social services !! any mother that does any drug while she is pregnant needs to be dealt with and don't say weed don't hurt cause it does!!
