In brief: Long term effects
Brain of unborn baby is very sensitive to methamphetamine effect.
Please do not underestimate toxic potential based on clearance time after single use. Furthermore, highly addictive drugs tend to be repeatedly used. These many exposures add up and must be considered.

In brief: Traces in poo
Meth can be detected in a fecal sample taken in a newborn.
It will reflect meth exposure within the past several months. Urine may clear within days. In local hospitals, any case where neonatal withdrawal or drug exposure is suspected will lead to testing of both mother & child with infant stool testing as backup to urine.
