Doing Right at Birth
Pregnant people who use drugs, including opioids, often forgo prenatal care and treatment for fear providers will report them to the child welfare system. This legitimate fear leaves pregnant people at risk of missing care that can improve the health and well-being of the dyad and decrease the risk of maternal mortality or morbidity. Experts in health and law, along with people affected by the child welfare system, will provide training about the legal, scientific, and ethical aspects of reporting birthing people who use drugs to the child welfare system. The goal is to give participants tools to promote recovery and equitable outcomes for birthing people, their children, and families. Intended Audience: Health care providers, social workers, hospital administrators, and public health officials.
