how long does it take to get cocaine out of a fetus system before it is born?

1 doctor answer
Dr. John Berryman

Coccaine: pregant: Coccaine can affect the fetus the same as the mother to be, and become addicted, which produces problems at birth. If this is a one time exposure, the fetus will clear its system within a day or two, but with repeated exposure, neurological manifestations can occur, and treatment after birth can be complicated.
