Supportive Care for Perinatal Substance Use

In this webinar, Dr. Kaitlan Baston and Kimberly Nabarro, Parent Leader and Makua Ally, will delve into the stigma and marginalization associated with addiction in pregnancy, and how both patients and medical professionals suffer from the lack of addiction medicine training in healthcare.

As a parent leader with lived experience navigating the child welfare system and a current Makua Ally working alongside pregnant and parenting individuals who are battling perinatal substance use disorder, Kim will bring an additional lens that will deepen the learning in this session.

This presentation will explore advances in the science and the neurobiology of Medication for Addiction Treatment (MAT) that will strengthen the work among practitioners, community providers, and court-related participants in the exploration of approaches that support families involving pregnant people with opioid and other substance use disorders as well as children exposed prenatally.
