Hi there ...

Most of the drugs cross placenta and effect baby after birth with symptoms of withdrawal , but it would be ideal to get his blood sample for common recreational drugs like cocaine , amphetamine .

He should be under care of Pediatrician to control his tremors .

Regards .

Positive feedback will be appreciated.

Thanks .
