Pregnancy and Newborns with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome
As part of its commitment to care for patients with substance use disorder where they seek medical care, Boston Medical Center has developed several programs to help pregnant women and newborn babies with addiction. Pregnant women with substance use disorders need care for both their pregnancy and addiction. Their babies are often born with neonatal abstinence syndrome, which also requires medical attention. Further, BMC is committed to supporting mothers and babies after delivery and into the first years of life.
