In brief: Not good

Maternal Cocaine addiction can lead to microcephaly (small head) and growth retardation in infants.
Cocaine may also interfere with maternal-infant bonding, as some research shows the mothers are less flexible, less engaged, and have shorter feeding sessions than other mothers with newborns. Even at 2 years of age, the infants show deficiencies in both fine and gross motor development.
