The Doctors discuss the shocking case of the parents who were sent to prison for reportedly giving their newborn daughter drugs on the day she was born. They were allegedly attempting to hide drug withdrawal symptoms in their newborn.
“This makes me so upset,” OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry says, explaining that when a pregnant mother is using drugs that the narcotics transfer to the baby and the newborn will most likely experience withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can include problems with eating, sleeping, becoming irritated easily, and also experience tremors.
“If you did drugs, don’t hide it from people. Take the fall, go to jail… your baby deserves to be treated,” Dr. Nita continues, stressing she wants expecting moms who are dealing with drug problems to seek help in treatment or to take steps to avoid getting pregnant if they are actively using.
The Doctors note that the parents involved were sentenced to 15 years.
