Methamphetamine usage while pregnant is not considered to be safe, and is harmful to the developing unborn baby. Methamphetamines cause an increase in heart rate in the mother and unborn baby. If Methamphetamine is used frequently, the baby may experience withdrawal symptoms once born, which include tremors, sleeplessness, muscle spasms and difficulties feeding. Using Methamphetamine while pregnant can lead to low birth weight, premature labor, miscarriage, learning difficulties, and placental abruption.
If you need help to stop using Methamphetamines, please contact your physician. There are also other resources. National Drug Help Hotline 1-800-662-4357, or National Alcohol and Drug Dependence Hopeline 1-800-622-2255
