Current Research On Pregnancy
A recent study conducted by the UNLV School of Medicine further clarifies our current understanding of cannabis usage during pregnancy.
Daily use of marijuana during pregnancy may lead to an increased risk of low birth weight, low resistance to infection. It can "disrupt the necessary flow of oxygen-rich blood through the placenta," according to a study from the UNLV School of Medicine.
The study is based on sonogram data from nearly 450 women who reported smoking marijuana daily during their pregnancies. The women, who were deemed "high-risk" for a variety of reasons, were referred by their doctors for ultrasounds.
The study found that "daily cannabis use is associated with delayed fetal growth, which can put a baby at risk of certain health problems during pregnancy, delivery, and even after birth. Those problems include low birth weight, hypoglycemia, low Apgar scores, among others, and in the most severe cases, delayed growth can lead to stillbirth."
