It is currently estimated that nationwide, 14% to 22% of women fill an opioid prescription during pregnancy. For newborns exposed to intrauterine opioids, the immediate risks include the postnatal withdrawal syndrome known as neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), which is currently estimated to affect one US birth every 15 minutes.1 Clinical monitoring for newborns with intrauterine opioid exp...
