Abstract

During a 5-year time span, 118 addicted women gave birth to viable infants. These patients were subject to an increased incidence of complicating medical problems as well as many obstetric problems leading to maternal or fetal risk. The obstetrician should be aware of the possibility of addiction and its effects on pregnancy, and when possible, appropriate management should be initiated. Inteasive care of the neonate must be begun as soon as possible.
