Pregnant women have been treated with methadone for more than 25 years and neither methadone or other opiates have not been shown to directly cause birth defects. However, your baby may experience some side effects of methadone. The most common are smaller-than-normal head size, low birth weight, and withdrawal symptoms. As babies born dependent on methadone grow, they usually will fall in the normal range for size and development.

I'm not sure what makes you think this is the group to post about methadone use during pregnancy. Do you suffer from the misconception that parents who skew towards natural birth and natural parenting, are secretly heroin users? Most of us don't even take tylenol while pregnant.
