  • 2. Background Abuse of prescription pain relievers by pregnant women can result in a number of problems in newborns, referred to as neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). This condition occurs in newborns due to sudden discontinuation from intrauterine exposure to opioids such as oxycodone, Demerol, and other addictive substances. NAS is characterized by tremors, irritability and restlessness hypertonicity, tremors, excessive high-pitched cry, which interferes with maternal-newborn bonding and interactions. This may lead to maternal lack of sensitivity to infant cues, and may result in “Maternal Postpartum Role Collapse”  Unfortunately, newborns with NAS are sometimes discharged home— unrecognized at risk of complications that stems from poor interaction, abuse, and neglect.
  • 3. Assumptions Assumption: That the maternal cognitive state due to withdrawal from substance abuse has a negative effect on interactions of mother and neonates going through withdrawal. Babies born to moms who depend on drugs frequently have additional complications that require specialized treatments and care; during postpartum and discharge period.
  • 4. Purpose of the Study  This research sets out to examine the effects of opioids withdrawal symptoms on early postpartum bonding, and interactions between mothers and neonates.  To identify standards of nursing practice needed to manage and meet mothers’ and neonates’ postpartum substance withdrawal condition.  To measure the efficacy of available discharge plans and teaching and the impact of a successful transition of substance-exposed neonates and their families.  Demonstrate ways that leadership can set standards of practice in postpartum units in order to enhance interaction of new mothers with their drug-exposed neonates.
  • 5. Purpose of the Study Contd. Effects of opioids withdrawal on postpartum bonding and early interaction—create a clinical leadership role at the point of care, by identifying themes that would facilitate successful outcomes and discharge of this population.
  • 6. Research Questions  What is nursing leadership’s role in enhancement of successful outcomes of NAS neonates and mothers during postpartum period and at discharge?  How can nurses help mothers manage postpartum substance withdrawal in order to enhance interaction with their drug-exposed neonates?  What are the standards of practice for substance-exposed neonates and their families?
