Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) in pregnant and parenting women creates an additional risk for an opioid-related death. When there is prenatal use of an OUD, inadequate care combined with stigmatization, challenges the well-being of mom and baby. Every 25 minutes, a baby is born suffering from 0pioid withdrawal in the US.

As a provider who offers either prenatal or postpartum care, you can increase your ability to recognize OUD and provide optimal treatment for pregnant and parenting women and their babies using a family-centered, empowering, and culturally relevant approach.

In this ECHO, you will understand how to build a more trusting, empowering relationship for women with an OUD. You will learn best practices for treatment and identify helpful community resources with a panel of Maternal Child Health and Addiction Medicine specialists and your peers. Help ensure that NJ mothers can give birth safely with the treatment and support they receive within their community.
