Good question. One of the problems with illegal and illicit drugs is that it's not practical to do proper research to get good answers to such questions. And the issue is even more complex than it appears, as, for instance, the sort of people who may be heavily into such drugs during pregnancy, may also be ingesting really poor nutrition, alcohol, and other bad habits.
The impact on the pregnancy via the mother is obviously a major posibility - thopugh there's also so evidence that drug habits may cause harm via the father, too. And then, such a person or couple are not likely to provide top-notch nutrition and other components of early baby and child care, either.
And apart from the genetic and purely physical possibiolities of harm, the psychological upbringing and welfare of such a child is probably also well short of ideal. Even where the parents are entirely drug-free and healthy, a child who is over-indulged and spoiled, and/or neglected, nay develop personality problems and bad behaviour.
It may indeed be very difficult to "get through to her". Maybe the main focus needs to be primarily on caring for and protecting the child to limit the chance of history repating itself.
