Promote Safe Opioid Use in Pregnant Women
You'll hear growing concerns about opioid use in pregnancy.
The stats are scary. Around one in three women of childbearing age fill an opioid Rx. And neonatal abstinence syndrome affects one baby born every 25 minutes.
Continue to try to limit opioid use. Recommend nondrug measures (physical therapy, etc) or use acetaminophen for pain instead of opioids.
