A shocking video (below) shows a baby shaking from withdrawals after being born addicted to drugs.

In the video, the baby can be seen violently shaking and twitching after birth while mother Clorissa Jones speaks of the struggles of being a heroin addict while pregnant with her first son, Jacoby.

“I was in labor, in the bathroom, shooting heroin,” Jones says through tears.

“A lot of people are like ‘how could you dare do that?" she added. "How could you dare do that to your child? But, nothing matters except for getting high. When I’m getting high, nothing matters and I’m very selfish. I’m self-centered.”

Jones used drugs until after Jacoby was born. Her second son, Braxton, was born with a methadone dependency. 

More than 130,000 children were born addicted to drugs in the United States over the past year, according to Daily Mail.
