This study aimed to identify the effects of drug use in pregnancy and its consequences for the newborn. Qualitative study accomplished in a public maternity in Fortaleza. The subjects of the research were nine postpartum. Semi-structured interviews were performed. The main drugs used were marijuana, cocaine and crack. It was identified damage in all newborns, among which stand out: congenital syphilis, jaundice, low birth weight, prematurity, respiratory distress and neonatal infection. Despite the use of drugs is a matter considered a transversal theme, discussion and exchange of experiences among professionals are rare, hindering the identification of risk factors and the implications arising in health of women and child due to drug use during gestation.
