Local 12: Pregnancy and addiction
A UC-led study may help reduce complications for babies born to addicted mothers
Researchers at the University of Cincinnati are leading a new trial, aimed at helping babies born to mothers with addiction disorders.
The number of women with opioid use disorder during labor and delivery has risen over the years, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. In this pandemic, those who work with this population say it’s gotten even worse.
The coronavirus pandemic has been tough on all expectant moms, but for those struggling with addiction:
“There has been an increase in overdoses with COVID-19,” said Christine Wilder, MD, associate professor and medical director of the Addiction Sciences Division in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience at UC and a UC Health physician. “I think more people are anxious. More people are using. It’s harder to get the treatment that you need.”
