With a teen mom the most important things we can do is....
referrals to good community resources for help
seek good role models in their life
Obstetric complications for a pregnant woman >35
multiple gestation PTL
What 2 substances cause vasoconstriction and complications with a developing baby?
tobacco and cocaine.....
CNS issues and IUGR
Drugs and fetus/baby
anything that goes into the mom systemically goes in to the baby. Drugs stay in the babies system longer, fetus cant metabolize drugs efficiently so drugs are in fetus long after they are out of the mom
