No matter the dose your baby will be born addicted to opiates and need to be detoxed with morphine. Some babies do this smoothly over the course of a few weeks, some take months. Make sure you are taking care of yourself, getting good prenatal care and be 100% honest with everyone caring for you and the baby. The baby will be able to spend some time with you at birth and then go to the NICU to begin detox. What is our plan after delivery? To stay on methadone, switch to suboxone, or get off it entirely?
