Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS)

Newborns exposed to opioids in the womb are at risk for a condition called neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). NAS symptoms can include painful tremors; excessive crying and irritability; and problems with sleeping, feeding, and breathing. NAS is associated with myriad risk factors that could affect the well-being and development of a newborn. NAS is responsible for profound social cost and human suffering. From 2004 to 2014, NAS prevalence increased 433%, accounting for $2.9 billion in hospitalization costs (Boston Medical Center, 2018) straining national healthcare systems.

The Covid-19 pandemic exacerbated opioid use disorder and incidences of overdose increased by approximately 30% nationwide, making Hushabye Nursery’s best practice NAS care services even more essential.

Every Baby Deserves a Chance for a Healthy Start; our team will walk with you and meet you wherever you are in your recovery journey.

Women who become pregnant while using opioids – both illegal and medically-monitored – are typically prescribed opiates throughout their pregnancies due to the risk of prenatal withdrawal and miscarriage. As a result, their babies are born into an opiate-dependent state known as Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS), which requires a complex and painful detoxification process in the days following birth.
