Drugs and baby
Hi there,

I just found out that I am pregnant and i am concerned as my husband tried cocaine (he only took it once) about two weeks before i conceived. Could this have adetrimental effect on our baby? I am very scared that something might happen.

Thanks for all the responses.

Your husband taking cocaine will not affect the baby. Only if you so, would it be a problem. However, the psychological issues should be addressed.
