In brief: In an emotional sea

Your body is producing hormones and changes in body chemistry due to your stress.
Any drugs you ingest, any medications you take as well as chemicals or herbs or additives will all end up in the pool your child is swimming in. The brain and organs are all developing at an enormous rate. There may be strange and long-lasting effects that will be difficult to overcome.
