Book Description

September 1, 2007 1552662187 978-1552662182
Pregnant drug users are the focus of this new study that argues that women who abuse substances should not be treated differently during their pregnancies but should instead be treated the same way as women who have medical problems with obstetric consequences. The social issues that produce drug abuse during pregnancy are discussed, and valuable information about top practices and policies for caring for maternal drug users is provided.

I am a neonatal nurse for money, harm reduction worker for pleasure. This book is what I have been waiting for my whole life. The information is organized, scientific, and takes into account the needs of both Mom and Baby. It is so difficult to find anything this practical when most literature expects too much or too little of drug using parents. These are Women, Moms, Caregivers. They are not perfect, but they have amazing potential. After reading this, I feel equipped to help my clients and patients make the most of that potential in a safe and caring way.
