The World Health Organization recently released Guidelines for identification and management of substance use and substance use disorders in pregnancy.
These guidelines were primarily written for health-care providers managing women from conception to birth, and during the postnatal period, and their infants.
The guidelines focus on six areas:
- Screening and brief intervention
- Psychosocial interventions
- Dependence management
- Infant feeding
- Management of infant withdrawal
