Pregnant, underweight, smokes weed, heart condition. Precautions during pregnancy?

My daughter is 20 and just found out she is pregnant. she is underweight , has SVT and is addicted to smoking pain pills and she also smokes a lot of weed. I am just wondering how her body is going to be able to handle all of the stress pregnancy brings on top of her heart condition and her pill addiction . Any help would be great. thanks

Thanks for writing to us.
Since your daughter is already pregnant, she needs to stop smoking immediately for proper growth and development of her baby. An opinion of cardiologist is also necessary to assess her cardiac condition in response to the increased work load.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
