Congrats on your long sobriety!. I have just over 3 months under my belt and its nice to know that its possible to have a multi year successful suboxone therapy if one chooses to do so. So sorry to hear of the lie told to you about pre-natal suboxone use but it sounds like things turned out just great for you so ,once again Congrats!

Hi Mamato5 and welcome to the forum. Thanks for sharing your story with us. I'm sorry to hear about your last pregnancy. It's unfortunate that your child suffered NAS, but it does happen. Some newborns of mom's on sub get it and some do not. It just depends and it cannot be predicted. But it's my personal opinion to not look back regretfully. There are dangers to stopping sub treatment during pregnancy, too. For all you know, had you stopped your treatment while you were pregnant, the worst could have happened and you might not have that wonderful child here today! So NO REGRETS! It worked out wonderfully and your child is happy and healthy now!

Again, welcome. Hope to see you around the forum. :)
