I spoke again to my midwife about pethadine today. I said I was wary of it because of the "out of control" feeling you can get with it and the possible side effects for the baby. She said that the regular dose is 100mg, but IF YOU ASK you can get it in 50mg, this way you stay in control, and can see if it agrees with you or not. She said she's rarely seen anyone really out of it, and in 6 years of being a midwife she's never seen a baby born suffering the effects of it. I almost want to try it now, she really made it sound like a good option. Opinions anyone?
