Arm yourself. Educate yourself. Fight for your right to fair and healthy solutions. Someone left a #CDC article on my Facebook about #marijuana consumption while pregnant. I encourage you all to Google and read the article and then find this one (link in bio) and compare. .
Here is my response:
The CDC is notorious for giving half witted advice to women pregnant and otherwise. If you read this page it is entirely anecdotal. .
Instead of blindly trusting a government source that is just about as efficient and accurate as the DMV, find actual research that does not operate on the word "may cause" with zero evidence.
Dr Melanie Dreher conducted the first only real reputable study on marijuana use during pregnancy because the women in her study were not abusing other drugs or alcohol.
Marijuana shows no increase of birth defects, THC itself has no side effect whatsoever for mother and child. .
The only possible negative outcome is the carcinogens that inherently exist in inhaling smoke. However, with marijuana usage, you only inhale one to two puffs to become medicated, unlike with cigarettes.
With vapor or edibles, the risks are completely nonexistent .
Furthermore, even if smoking flower is the only available option, the benefits of maternal health far outweigh the risks an marijuana is a much safer option than prescription medications that are proven to cause serious fetal harm such as heart defects. .
Marijuana helps fight nausea, serious fatigue, insomnia, inflammation, stress, depression, and anxiety. Eliminating and soothing all of the symptoms with virtually zero risk contributes to a much better state of maternal health which in turn nourishes and develops an unborn baby where otherwise all of these factors would prevent proper growth and development or require harmful prescription drugs. .
This isn't just a matter of "I like to smoke weed so I'm not going to stop"
This is a matter of an evidence-based need for fair, low-risk health care for women and their unborn babies to have happy healthy pregnancies. .
