The purpose of this guideline is to promote the safe and effective prescribing and administration of methadone in antenatal and postnatal opioid-dependent women. These guidelines are intended for healthcare professionals, particularly those in training, who are working in HSE-funded obstetric and gynaecological services. They are designed to guide clinical judgement but not replace it. In individual cases a healthcare professional may, after careful consideration, decide not to follow a guideline if it is deemed to be in the best interests of the woman.
