newborn with heart problems
An_257700 posted:
a friend just had a baby girl, but they say her heart is not beating right. instead of lub dub it goes lub dub clink. the mommy has a thyroid problem and says that is what caused it but I don't think it is. I think she took pills the whole pregnancy(not ones prescribed for pregnant women) she only went to the doc maybe twice the entire pregnancy. could her taking narcotics cause the baby's heart to do that. its to late for them to do a pure drug screen because the baby is already a couple days old. I am very worried about her baby PLEASE HELP
