No intrauterine growth retardation in babies of mothers stabilized on methadone before conception and throughout their pregnancies

Klempova D., Okruhlica L.

Summary: The aim of the present study is to explore the maturity of neonates of women who had conceived while being stabilized on methadone and who remained stabilized throughout their pregnancies. The sample comprised ten women and their neonates. All the neonates were eutrophic and nine of them were full-term. Mean birth weight of the neonates was 3,193 g. None of the measures of maturity differed from the data for the general population. The results obtained do not indicate any negative effect of methadone alone on neonatal maturity.
