Baby Born Addicted

Baby Born Addicted        When my girlfriend got pregnant she was on 60mg of methadone. She wanted to decrease her dose but the clinic told her she needed to go up because they said the baby was taking half of it away from her. They increased her up to 180mg a day. The baby was born addicted to methadone and was kept in the hospital for 3 weeks. It was tough to go to the hospital every day to watch my newborn son go through the same kind of withdrawal symptoms an adult does, shaking and crying. You can't tell me that methadone is safe for unborn babies.
