I delivered my baby 7 weeks ago. I had no idea thet tested me and my daughter. They were incredibly rude to me and treated me as if I had a crack baby. They called protective services. It ended up being an open close case, however they are sending out early on next week to check her development. My daughter is just fine, was born very healthy, she already rolls over and lifts her head 90 degrees while on tummy and bats at her toys. She is right on schedule if not beyond. But they will make you feel terrible. It was to be the best memory of my life and I feel disgusted thinking about how they treated me.
The hospital automatically take toxicity test when the baby is born and if found will call social services, who can have you charged, investigated and then remove the baby from your custody
I feel your pain... With my first son I quit after 3 months of being preg. But for some reason the doctor tested me before that and tested me everytime I went since then, but like I said I had quit. After I had him, they still had a worker come and she said she was being nice in not opening a case for me so long as I promised not to smoke again. Now I'm preg. With my second son and the stress of thier father leaving us, being a single mother livign on my own and going to school as well as being the sole provider and caretaker is such a heavy burden on my back I havn't been able to quit. I know I've tested positive and I feel like all of the doctors look at me like I'm an awful mother. If only they knew how hard I worked to keep my son happy and healthy and clothed... Anyways let me know what happens with you... I'm so nervous as to what's going to happen when hes born because of how serious they took the failed drug test after only 3 months with my first son!
They can arrest you for child neglect/abuse.
