When you are pregnant, it is important that you watch what you are using. Consumption of illegal drugs is not safe for the unborn baby or for the mother. Consumption of illegal drugs during pregnancy can result in miscarriage, low birth weight, premature labor, placental abruption, fetal death, and even maternal death.
PCP are hallucinogens. PCP users can behave violently sometimes.. which may harm the baby if the mother hurts herself. PCP use during pregnancy can lead to low birth weight, poor muscle control, brain damage, and withdrawal syndrome if used frequently. Withdrawal symptoms include lethargy, alternating with tremors. LSD can lead to birth defects if used frequently.
Transfer to the fetus has been demonstrated in humans with placental metabolism of the drug (1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7) . Qualitative analysis of the urine from two newborns revealed phencyclidine levels of 75 ng/mL or greater up to 3 days after birth.
Kindly Madam dont use any kind of drug or any Medicine with out consulting with your doctor, it will be better for you and best for your new born baby.

Take care have a great day.
