Is drug screening mandatory for newborns in Alabama?

Postby vanaken25 » Wed Nov 23, 2011 5:03 pm

A friend smoked when she first got pregnant but didn't know she was until she was 4 months. She never took a test because her periods are aways irregular. Does anyone know if her baby will be tested when it's born? Or the laws about testing newborns in Alabama?

If her dr suspects she is using it is possible she and the baby will be tested. If she or the baby test positive then the law will be notified. Alabama is one of the states that will get the mom for chemical endangerment of a child if she or the child test positive.
