I am pregnant and was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum (HG). I cannot stop vomiting.

My midwife is recommending marijuana. Can this be harmful to my baby? Should I smoke it or is there a safer way? I'll do anything to get relief.

The current recommendation by both the American College of Pediatricians and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is to avoid marijuana both during pregnancy and while breast feeding.
