The use of PCP while pregnant is not considered to be safe, and is harmful to the developing unborn baby. PCP is a hallucinogen and users can have violent behavior, which may cause harm to the unborn baby if the mother hurts herself. If PCP is used frequently, the baby may experience withdrawal symptoms once born, which include lethargy, alternating with tremors. Using PCP while pregnant can lead to low birth weight, poor muscle control, and brain damage.
If you need help to stop using PCP, 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 Updated: 04.27.17
