Drug testing

Does anyone know if Mississippi drug tests newborns? I can't find any definite answers anywhere. I've quit but am still worried.

Hi and welcome to Mothering! I'm moving your thread to Birth and Beyond where it will get more answers.

I doubt you'll find a definitive answer. It will normally vary by hospital and policy or common practice. For example, anecdotal evidence seems to indicate that you're more likely to be tested if you are on public insurance (based on some past threads on the topic, etc.). There are probably hospitals that test everyone but I doubt you'll find it advertised. The reality is that you sign a blanket consent when you enter the hospital for care so they aren't obligated to inform you if they do it.
