A troubling trend of babies born to drug addicted moms and is happening in northwest Ohio. Great work has been achieved at Toledo Children's Hospital as doctors and nurses are helping babies born to drug addicted moms not only survive, but thrive.
This is a problem that is on the rise in Toledo. In 2007 there were 2 drug dependent babies reported. In 2013 there were at least 45 reported.
"The use of opiates from the community has increased significantly over the past 5 to 7 years, so we are seeing far more babies born that are drug dependent than we ever did in the past," said Dr. Howard Stein, Medical Director, Promedica Toledo Children's Hospital.
Doctors treat these babies with medication or without medication, depending on the baby. It is meant to help wean the child off their drug dependency.
"Most of our babies are off drugs in 3 to 4 weeks, with a few of them coming off a little faster and a few them taking a little longer before the dependence goes away," said Dr. Stein.
Ohio Governor John Kasich recently signed into law a bill that requires hospitals to now report all babies who are born to drug addicted moms.
