Cocaine use among pregnant women and reports of its adverse perinatal consequences have increased substantialy over the past 10 years.
However, most researchers have studied patients registred at drug treatment centers or have relied on voluntary participation by patients, either of which introduces the possibility of selection bias.
To determine the frequency and consequences of prenatal cocaine use among an unselected inner-city obstetric population, we collected urine samples from parturient women at a municipal hospital and anomymously tested these specimens for metabolites of cocaine, marijuna, opiates, and methadone.
