The physician may test the infant to ascertain whether or not the infant has controlled substances in the infant's bodily fluids, if the parent or guardian consents to the testing and if the physician determines that there is a serious risk that there are controlled substances in the infant's bodily fluids because of the mother's ingestion use of controlled substances while she was pregnant with the infant and that the health of the infant may be adversely affected by the controlled substances.
