Neo Natal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS)

Neonatal withdrawal syndrome (also known as NAS) is a set of conditions that occur when a child refuses certain medications in the womb before birth. NAS most commonly occurs when women use drugs called opioids during pregnancy. However, it can also be caused by antidepressants (used to treat depression), barbiturates, or benzodiazepines (hypnotics). Taking these drugs during pregnancy can cross the placenta and cause serious problems for the baby. The placenta grows in the uterus (the womb) and provides food and oxygen to the baby through the umbilical cord.
