A friend of mine is pregnant. She is 13 weeks. She smokes pot. She drinks alot. She takes Klonopins, Lortabs, and Xanaxs on a regular basis. Talking to her is not helping. Can someone please send me any information you can find on the effects of the above mentioned on an unborn child. Please this is extremely important for the health and well being of this child. I am having troubles locating information and am asking for everyone's help. Thank you all in advanced!

You could report her to your local social services office.

I dont want to get her into trouble. I just want to show her what she is doing to her child in hopes that she will quit.

Try calling a hospital or OB's office and say you know someone who is doing this and you want to know where you can get written info to give to her about the affects. I think that would be your best bet for getting definate info in what will happen other then stuff like....it will hurt the baby....GL.

Does anyone know of any websites or anything. Everyone i call just keeps putting me on hold and leaving me there.

go to google.com and type something in like "drug effects on pregnancy" or "klonopins research" "marijuana research pregnancy" something like that... you'll have to sort through some stuff, but you'll eventually find what you're looking for...

Try this. I could find more with more looking but you could too probably. www.addictionca.com/drug-use-pregnancy.htm

I think you are awesome for doing this. I don't have any sites off the top of my head, but your friend may be super-scared to go off of xanax - I used to be on it and it's SO scary to get off of it - so maybe if you talk to her about that, express how hard you know it will be for her to ditch both xanax and klonopin - but obviously it's worth it and necessary. Good luck!
