  • Hell yeah! It took MONTHS of family calling CPS on my SIL before they did anything... so just your call won't do it and they will investigate. If you see a life-threatening problem, call them. That's what they're there for.

  • I would have to say Yes! Actually i'm surprised nobody has yet if this has been going on. it's not about putting her life in check, it's about looking out for the safety of her innocent children. they didn't choose the life she's giving them. Your name will remain anonymous if that's something you're worried about...

  • ?? i don't understand anon's answer, but if you are in a situation where a pregnant women is smoking crack in front of you, you're probably not the person that will be jumping to do anything about it... that i know of ppl don't just do that in the grocery store???

  • absolutely. she has a drug problem. no child needs to be around that. i'm surprised the hospital didn't call cps. they take your blood and they would have seen she's been on drugs.

  • The hospital needs to be aware of this so that they know to treat the baby as a crack baby if they aren't already. The hospital should have called CPS already. I would talk to a nurse and see where to go from there.

  • Yes, you should! But the hospital has most likely already taken care of that.

  • I would have called CPS the minute you knew she was doing drugs. Call call, call RIGHT NOW. you need to protect these chikldren before something really bad happens and you hear about it or see it and you spend the rest of your life knowing that all you had to do was pick the F-ing phone up. Do something right now these children didn't ask for this.

    Children are born into this world owing us NOTHING, we owing them EVERYTHING.

  • Definitely call even if it is just to get the child the help it needs since it was born a "crack baby".
