No. Once the child is born to an unmarried couple, paternity needsto be established before a child support petition can be filed. Itcan be the voluntary acceptance of the male involved or in disputedcases a paternity test (usually DNA rather than a blood test) mustbe done.
If you are exposed to the fumes of haircolor in a normal way (for example you are in a hair salon or you are helping someone to dye their hair) then there is no risk, and I wouldn't worry about it. HOwever, if you are excessively exposed to fumes (you are purposely inhaling a bottle of hair dye for …some mysterious reason) or maybe if you work in a beauty salon (where you also regularily breathe in hairspray and other chemicals) then this is considered to be a risk, but only somewhat, as many hair stylists work right through their pregnancies without any ill effects to the baby. However, there is a concern about applying hair dye to your own head, as the skin on your scalp can absorb the chemicals and they will travel through your bloodstream and to the unborn baby. This is very debatable, adn the amounts are said to be very small, but all doctors say better-be-safe-than sorry and ask all moms to be to avoid dying their hair during the pregnancy term. (MORE)
YES!!! Vicodin addiction is a common problem, especially for people in chronic pain, because tolerance to vicodin goes up dramatically and quickly. If you're an adult, it's your choice, but if you are pregnant, then yes, your baby could come into this planet craving narcotics. You should NOT even be… taking vicodin (or any narcotic) while pregnant, whether you are in your first, second or third trimester. Could be More than likely, yes. Anything that goes into your body goes to your baby. Anything you're addicted to, your baby can also get addicted to. If you're prescribed to it, then, my advice is to talk to your OBGYN about it, and they can tell what the best thing to would be. My friend is in her 8th month and around her 6th month she started smoking again, and a few weeks ago she finally asked her doctor what she should do. He told her that she should gradually cut down but not to quit cold turkey because then the baby would fiend for it. If your not prescribed to it, then I would advice you do that because if they find drugs in your baby's system when it is born, then, they will take it away from you. I advice gradually quitting not just for your sake but for especially for the baby's. ANOTHER ANSWER VICODIN (hydrocodone + acetaminophen [Tylenol]) is an OPIOID (narcotic) painkiller. Either ingredient can cause problems for your baby. What ever drug you take while pregnant also goes to your baby. High doses of even Tylenol can cause problems for the fetus, as well as the narcotic. Your baby can be born addicted to the narcotic. It is DANGEROUS to take ANY drug while pregnant, especially narcotics. If you can't talk to your doctor about it, you should start weaning yourself off of Vicodin NOW. DO NOT stop all at once. Slowly decrease what you take, little by little until you are off of it all together. If you CARE about your BABY you will (and can) do this. PLEASE, for your baby, get off of Vicodin. You CAN do it. Good Luck. (MORE)

It can cause anything from retarded growth, all the way tochromosome damage and mutation. Especially if it is smoked.
Candida albicans or yeast infection demands attention and can be treated easily. It does not harm the unborn child as such.
Answer . Ok I can relate to this question. (Kinda). I was just pregnant and I really think that stress can cause a miscarriage...but I'm not 100% sure about it... today I just found out I had a miscarriage.. My dad and I fight all the time and his girlfriend and his daughter. My boyfriend and… I don't fight at all..(Sometimes just little arguments but that's not a big deal). I was fine until I started arguing with people...but don't get me wrong you can also have a miscarriage for many other reasons too. Stress I think is #1. Just try relax and stay calm about things...that would be my best guess. . (MORE)
An unborn child does not have a chance in life. The unborn have the rights the woman carrying it agrees to up to the 24th week.

will scarlet fever harm an unborn child, if so, what is the worst case scenerio. How bad does scarlet fever effect the normal adult?
X-rays can damage the DNA of any living being subject to them; to an adult human, their impact is minimal and so occasional X-rays are not dangerous. However, for an unborn child an X-ray can potentially be harmful--so be sure that you have a competent doctor's full and unreserved blessing before un…dergoing an X-ray procedure while pregnant. Many times, other kinds of radiography are safer while pregnant (sonography, MRI, etc.). (MORE)
As long as the room is well ventilated - allowing plenty of freshair, the baby should be fine. If you are dizzy from the fumes -that is an indication of lack of air - the baby may need fresh airat that point too.
no. As a means of contraceptive douching is pretty much pointless. If anything it can set you up for yeast infections and whatnot because of the procedure changing your natural pH.
First Answer . Feta cheese is not harmful to an unborn child in any way. Actually, the calcuim in cheese is good for the mother and the baby. But many cheeses are high in sodium, so if you are on a low sodium diet, check with your doctor before eating it, or anything else high in sodium.. Second… Answer . Feta cheese could be harmful to a pregnancy. There is the possibility of spontaneous abortion if the cheese contains Listeria. Soft or semi-soft cheeses made from unpasteurized milk has a higher likelihood of being contaminated with the bacteria. (MORE)
According to a longitudinal study published in 1991, and done in the 1980's in Jamaica by Melanie Dreher, RN, PhD, FAAN, and funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the March of Dimes, at 3 days after birth, there was no difference in babies who were exposed to cannabis, and those who wer…e not. After 30 days, the exposed babies did better on comprehensive evaluations than non-exposed babies. After 4 years, there was no significant difference between the two groups. At 5 years of age, after the children had started school, the McCarthy scale and something called "the home scale" again showed no difference between exposed children and non-exposed children. A video of a presentation of this study by Dr. Dreher at the Patients Out of Time Conference in Asilomar in July of 2008 is available http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=39313123&searchid=b4885688-abdb-4dac-b6b8-1ab5e62b525a "here" . NIDA did not continue funding the study at this point, because the study did not show the harm they expected to see. (MORE)
Many things can harm the unborn fetus including, but not limited to, alcohol, illicit drugs, prescription and non-prescription medication, infections, trauma, and smoking.

Please write your question in a COMPLETE sentence, telling what you want to know ABOUT the cry of an unborn child.
What would you like to know about it? Usually that would give a better hint as to what we should answer about.
There is one thing I would say...... . If you eat an apple and half goes to the baby that means if you smoke half of that goes to the babys lungs. . more info..... . When you smoke, your unborn baby smokes, too. On average, babies of women who smoke weigh less at birth than babies of nonsmokers. …And if you smoke a lot during pregnancy-more than a pack a day-the baby's birth weight is likely to be even lower. This is not surprising, since the nicotine in cigarettes causes the baby's blood to be starved of the oxygen needed for healthy growth. Although the baby quickly gains back the lost weight, by age 7 a child of a mother who smoked during pregnancy is still more likely than other children to be shorter in height, slower at reading and lower in "social adjustment" than children of nonsmoking mothers.

Yes. There are several methods including a procedure called amniocentesis in which a needle is inserted into the uterus and a small amount of the amniotic fluid is collected for testing.

Can drinking whiskey on a regular basis harm your unborn child if you just found out and are only 4 weeks pregnant?
Possibly but I'd quit drinking any alcohol at all until at least after the child is born. You should ask the question of a medical doctor at a free clinic, planned parenthood office or someplace like that. Planned parenthood helps people with these questions. They don't just abort babies like some p…eople think they do. They can help prepare you for delivery too. Drinking more will certainly hurt the child more so you may be okay so far. Good luck. (MORE)
I'm not sure if you should be having a baby if you need to ask this question. Of course alcohol can harm an unborn baby. What you eat and drink is what the baby eats and drinks. There is a plethora of information on the Internet through a simple Google search. But I advise you or anyone else aski…ng this question legitimately to see a doctor and ask him what can harm an unborn baby. Alcohol, smoking, illicit drugs and even some medications can harm an unborn baby very easily. The results can be disastrous from miscarriages to birth deformations, etc. (MORE)
Immune system in a fetus is not well developed. And as such it is less likely and very less harmful for the mother to have damage from antibody from the fetus. Never the less this is possible.
They can be if not done properly. It is best to wait until after the baby is born and you're done breastfeeding (if you so choose) before getting a tattoo. You can always ask your doctor for her/his advice on this issue, too.
No. Both the mumps virus and its antibodies can both cross the placental barrier, so the mother's antibodies can easily and safely deal with the virus.
The baby is safe inside of you if you get burned by hot water. However, it is important to keep your body temperature from elevating, such as would happen if you spent an extended amount of time in a hot tub.
Impetigo is a 'contagious' disease. That means it is spread by direct physical contact. If you don't touch anyone who has it you shouldn't get the infection. It is quite rare for an adult to get impetigo. This is partly because it is usually caused by the most common bacteria which are present on th…e skin, and adults usually have more resistance. Being pregnant does not create an extra risk. The bacteria which cause the disease are not likely to cause any harm to an unborn child if there is only an infection on the skin. The disease is often treatable with antibiotic cream, but sometimes the patient also needs to take an antibiotic by mouth. If you did catch the infection, then as long as the doctor knows that you are pregnant, you could, if required, be prescribed antibiotic that is safe to use in pregnancy. (MORE)
without very complicated testing which I doubt you could get, you will need to wait until the birth. Simple tests should suffice after that.
Omg, yes. It can effect a baby very badly, in fact, it can die in your womb from smoking, drinking, etc. Please, if you are pregnant and are a smoker, I beg of you to try your hardest to stop it.
Medical doctors will tell you no because it hasn't been tested on pregnant women. I can only speak from my experience. I used cannabis during pregnancy and am still during breastfeeding with my 2nd pregnancy for nausea, migraines, aches/pains and sleeplessness. I used minimal amounts in the form of …smoking (although vaporizing is preferred) and edibles. I experienced no problems and neither did my baby. She was born very healthy with Apgar scores of 9 and 9. She was feverishly nursing within an hour of birth. She's talking much earlier than normal and she is absolutely thriving. She's been going to sleep on her own since 5 months and is extremely alert and active during the day. If you are interested in talking with other smoking moms, google smokinmomz.org. Those fantastic ladies helped me make my decision to keep using this wonderful natural plant that is waaay better than taking prescription meds! Good luck to you! (MORE)
Amphetamines are considered unsafe to use in pregnancy and while there is limited medical evidence of the consequences of using amphetamine type stimulant drugs during pregnancy, the following effects have been described: . Reduced blood flow caused by narrowing of the blood vessels 2,limiting oxyg…en and nutrient supply to your unborn baby and resulting in reduced growth and head circumference. . Antepartum bleeding conditions. . Behaviour and learning difficulties in children who were exposed in utero. . Other medical evidence suggests the drugs may cause pregnancy complications including miscarriage and early labour; an increased risk of fetal abnormalities (i.e. heart abnormalities); altered fetal nervous system as the drug acts as a stressor to baby and alteration of (baby) brain structure and development.

If you mean if a mother eats corn starch, then no, not unless the mother has an allergy to corn starch. Normally corn starch would be very good for the mother to eat in moderation.
An unborn child (fetus) gets all of its nutrients from the mother. Therefore, if the mother is malnorished then the baby will be too. This can have many negative long term effects on the child, even if it is fed plenty of food once it has been born. Some of the long term effects are: - A weak im…mune system - Slower growth and being born undersized - Lower levels of stamina and energy - Greater risks for contracting illnesses - The posibility of having lower IQ and cognitive impairment - Birth defects and mental disorders The more malnorished the mother is the worse the effects will be. If the mother is starving then the baby may not develop sufficiently to survive and will die in childbirth. (MORE)

If you are talking about the drug ice then absolutely. You should not be carrying a baby if you are going yo harm it with a drug.
It can cause deformities and metal probems or the child when it is born. If the mother has been smoking an adictive drug like cannabis then the child will be born adicted to that drug.
