I need some advice... We are being shown to a birthmom who has used heroin throughout her pregnancy. While we don't have much info at this point, I do know that she has used small amounts regularly thru the pregnancy, has had prenatal care regularly since she was 4 months pregnant, and was on methadone (instead of heroin) for the 5th month of her pregnancy.
I have done a lot of research on the effects of heroin on pregnancy and have also talked to a few of our physician friends. What i'm looking for is advice from anyone who has actually taken on a situation such as this. What effects did you notice in your newborn, infant, and child (if any)? Any info would be sooo appreciated! Thanks!
