How do I find out if I will be drug tested during pregnancy and whether my baby will be tested at birth?

"Where do I find out how I’m drug tested while pregnant (and my baby at birth) for marijuana? I am only using CBD currently, but I am paranoid that when I’m pregnant I’ll be tested and something bad will come up even though it’s just CBD."


Hello! Congratulations on your pregnancy. As a general rule, we recommend abstaining from the use any type of cannabis when patients are trying to get pregnant, when pregnant, or when breastfeeding. Cannabis crosses the placenta and into breastmilk, so the baby would receive some of the cannabis. We know that cannabis can cause lower birth weight babies and other anomalies. There needs to be more research done but the bottom line is that it’s best to avoid it during pregnancy and postpartum. Best of luck to you.
