Addictions

Smoking and alcohol addiction, which are very widespread, sometimes overshadow other substances* or behavioral problems: eating behavior, physical hyperactivity, compulsive shopping... In any case, the impact on the fetus and the child can be significant: poor respiratory adaptation, miscarriage, slow fetal heart rate and withdrawal syndrome at birth, miscarriage, low birth weight and prematurity.

Fetal consequences of addiction vary widely according to the type of addiction.
