Does patient-doctor confidentiality apply in my situation?

I used marijuana before shortly before I got pregnant. When I found out, I quit immediately. I tested positive for THC when I came in for my first visit and spoke to the counselor and doctor about it and it was established that I am no longer using. For my 3rd visit, I had a new doctor and she brought it up with my mom in the room. She said that I would have to go to a specialist because I tested positive, when my previous doctor (owner of the practice) determined it was not necessary. I did not want my mother to know about me testing positive for THC. She is now threatening to kick me out because of this. Does patient-doctor confidentiality apply at this point? What can I do?
