'Tik is' methamphetamine and you can and should read as much as possible about the effects of this drug on the unborn baby and the newborn baby. You will find much information on Google. The main concerns are that affected infants are usually small and underweight at birth and may be rather jittery and shaky at birth. The babies may have problems with their development and learning ability.
