Opioid Use and the Maternal Brain

In this episode of Mommy Brain Revisited I talk with Dr James Swain, a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist and Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, at Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University in New York State, USA. We talk about his nearly 20 years of research on the human maternal brain and his current research on how opioid use disorder can alter the maternal brain and potentially behavior. [When we talk about opioid use disorder we’re often talking about prescription medications.]

We also talk about the Mom Power intervention and how interventions like this can change our maternal brains for the better.

If you’re struggling with opioid use please reach out for support. You are not alone. Treatment can help. Talk to you health care provider today.
