Risks of Opioid Use During Pregnancy

Opioid use during pregnancy can have serious consequences for both mothers and their unborn children. Mothers may experience preeclampsia, a dangerous pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure and protein in the urine. Dangers for the fetus and newborn child include:

  • Poor fetal growth
  • Stillbirth
  • Premature birth
  • Birth defects
  • Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), in which the child is born physically dependent on opioids and goes through withdrawal [1]

If you have an opioid addiction and you’re experiencing pregnancy symptoms, you will need to research if there is a pregnancy doctor in your area that can prescribe you Subutex for your pregnancy or Suboxone for pregnancy. Subutex or Suboxone is a type of medication that is also known as buprenorphine that is commonly used to treat individuals who have an addiction to opioids as it serves as a replacement.

How Subutex for Pregnancy Works

Subutex works by stimulating the receptors in the brain that respond to opioids and eases the cravings typically experienced. [2] Subutex or Buprenorphine, along with evidence-based behavioral therapies, is recommended by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) as the standard of care for treating pregnant women with opioid use disorder. [3] Only certain doctors can prescribe Subutex or Suboxone for pregnancy to patients, as they must be certified to do so.
