          Why A Pregnant, Self-Confessed Heroin Addict Says She Hasn’t Had Any Prenatal Care


          June 7, 2017

          “I haven’t had regular prenatal care,” admits Niki an eight months’ pregnant, self-confessed heroin addict who claims she has a gram-a-day habit. She says she found out she was pregnant when she was in jail at around four months and was given an ultrasound only after she’d OD’d at seven months.

          She says she’d never thought about or planned on having kids, and wishes she’d found out about her pregnancy sooner. “If I was clean and if I was more stable, it wouldn’t be so much of a question. That, that’s the only reason, it’s a question is because I’m so unstable,” she says. “It’s not fair. If I, if I can’t take care of myself, I’m a—I don’t want to dump a baby off on my family. It’s not fair. It’s not fair to the kids - or anybody.”

          What does Niki say happened when she tried to find help for herself and her unborn child? And why does she say she’s afraid to detox while she’s pregnant? Part one of this two-part Dr. Phil airs Wednesday.
