The internet forums that Pregnancy women can turn to regarding their issues on MMT/MAT are very few (active) Mom's on MMT/MAT have many more than just the issues any patient may have or goes thru with their clinics, society, medical professionals etc....and we need to get something active going on for them outside of facebook or inactive forums that have been abandoned and/or go unmoderated.....So I need some help and participation in this...I am trying to recruit someone to maintain this forum (hint hint) but all of us need to share stories and put any info out there to include articles, links, studies etc....Just one more way we here at a.t. watchdog can help our people....

I think that making our pregnancy forum active again would be a great idea. Hopefully it would really help people as well because there are not many forums that concentrate just on pregnancy/fertility issues for women on MMT. The ones that did are mostly inactive, or are very public because they are on Facebook.

Obviously fertility and pregnancy are sometimes things that can be private and sensitive, so you don't really want to post somewhere using your real name to discuss it all!!

Here I am! Just saw that this is opened! I see it in the main page when I sign in.

Can't wait to get some great medical journal articles up on here. I have some great ones about some studies done about how a higher dose of methadone does NOT mean a higher likelihood of NAS or more severe NAS. Also some great stuff about the benefits of breast feeding and how it lowers NAS symptoms.

Also my clinic Doc is an OB specializes in high risk pregnancies with an emphasis on methadone pregnancies.

Maybe I could do an interview with him, and get it posted? Or just get some literature and advice from him. I know that when I have a child I don't care if his hospital is an hour away, I'm seeing him! He has treated all the women with babies I know at my clinic, and they all seemed very happy.

I know having a doctor who is knowledgable about MMT and babies makes a big different in how your baby is treated.

So thankful you decided to start up this part of the forum!

NEW FORUM

Yes I want to see if we can't get some things on here for issues surrounding pregnancy, fertility and childbirth on MMT.....I have some stuff too I will throw up this forum....We might have to do a lot of copy pasting because links alone are not very helpful to the individuals on phone especially....By the time they go over to the article etc...they have to jum thru hoops to get back to the forum.....

I think that having all this information posted, and having someone that is so interested in fertility and pregnancy posting them is going to be really good for the board.

There is only 1 other MMT pregnancy forum that I can think of, and it is not really very busy, and the FB group that had a pregnancy specialist as a moderator no longer has her, so a pregnancy forum is desperately needed.

I'm quite excited about it!

So I have a huge test on Tuesday so I am going to be busy until then. But Tuesday afternoon after my test, I am going to really go to work on this and find as much reliable info I can. I will also make sure I cut and paste the info, as well as provide the link. Since I know sometimes links don't work.


Sooooo excited. I'm going to tell people about this on other groups and forums, I'm going to wait till Tuesday thou to really start promoting it.

That sounds great, thanks Allison! I hope that we can make this pregnancy forum the place to be for moms on MMT!
