Book description

This book will help readers gain vital guidance and support when treating the high-risk, high-reward population of women confronting (or battling) opioid-use disorders during pregnancy. Large numbers of pregnant women are dependent on opioids and require comprehensive non-judgemental care to replace traditional approaches of incarceration and child welfare involvement that worsen outcomes for both mother and infant. Invaluable and comprehensive, this toolkit provides the key to non-judgemental care for both mother and baby, throughout labor, delivery management and postpartum care. It bridges the important treatment gap through evidence-based, caring approach; standardizing exceptional care, for obstetricians, pediatricians, addictionists, and anyone caring for pregnant women with opioid-use disorders. Edited by a Board-certified expert in obstetrics, gynecology and addiction medicine, and a team of internationally-acclaimed leaders in women's health, this guide provides high-quality advice, guidelines and vital skills to tackle a currently expanding opioid epidemic.
