Marijuana Use During Pregnancy & Breastfeeding

The early months are important. Your baby’s brain grows and develops quickly during the first few months of their life. Being exposed to marijuana in breastmilk, through nursing or pumped milk, can cause problems for your baby’s developing brain. If a mother making breastmilk eats or smokes marijuana, the drug easily crosses over into the milk and then goes into the baby.

What happens if you are pregnant. Smoking marijuana during pregnancy makes it so less oxygen and food get to the baby. The drug crosses the placental barrier and can be found in the newborn’s body for up to one month after a single use.

For more information ask your Clinician for the full handout.

Heat Stress & Keeping Cool

Looking for ways to keep cool and healthy during the hot summer months? Here are some tips and tricks of things to do:

  • Drink Up The most important thing you can do is to drink lots of water.
  • Dress For The Heat Wear loose-fitting, light colored clothes that will breathe. If outside, wear a hat or cap.
  • Eat Right Eat lighter meals and avoid heavy meals. Fresh fruits with higher water content is also a plus.
  • Rest & Shade If going outside or in a place without air conditioning, be sure to take breaks often and stick to the shade.
  • Be Ready For Hot Days Wear a bandana soaked in cold water (or frozen) around your neck. Plus, think “cool thoughts” and don’t focus on the heat.
