  • I know each state is different, but when my sis was in NC and she had a baby born addicted to cocaine they informed us that IF the baby made it out of NICU and could go home she would not be going with my sister so my mother or I better contact a lawyer if we wanted custody. The baby died sadly, but I do know they wouldn't let her go home if she had lived. Good luck and I hope things work out for you.

  • make her go to rehab, how hard is it to just make her go? Tell her if she doesn't then she won't have this baby either and they will grow up without a mom. Tell her to grow up or she and that baby can die. I pee every visit I have at the obgyn and they sure test probably every once in a while for drugs. Everyone does at most obgyn's.
