  1. how do these people get to keep their children? this doesn't make any sense. that poor baby didn't deserve that start into life. those are selfish people who don't need to have that child. you put yourself before that child even while she was growing. being with parents like that is only going to end badly for that poor baby

  2. If they could not stay clean while she was expecting and with two other kids to care for i think this child should never have gone home with them let them prove they are clean for at least six months before taking the risk with a young life thats already suffered enough, plenty of decent people out there could give this child so much more.

  3. I can't even read these comments at all because just the fact that someone made this video as if it's a bad thing shows how absolutely stupid they are and that they know nothing at all when a female becomes pregnant and is currently addicted to opiates it is recommended and actually the most safe alternative to get on methadone as soon as possible this is because going into withdrawal is a very easy way to cause a miscarriage and the baby will die any woman in New York state jail or prison that is pregnant and has a heroin or opiate habit is pretty much forced on to methadone now when it comes to the actual birthing sometimes the babies come out without Methadone in your system sometimes they do it's just a simple fact because the babies absorb very quickly from your system and some just don't show it a lot of babies end up leaving the hospital in two days without any withdrawal and some need to stay for a few days and get tiny Dosis of morphine for a few days until 36 table then the fragments of it that remain in breast milk actually help calm the baby I didn't read any other comments and I hope the person that posted this video is dead

  4. I get that she wants to keep her child but there are better families out there. Parents who are not or ever been addicted to drugs…Most of these women seem to keep using even after they have drug addicted newborns smdh

  5. What a gorgeous little angel! I hope your little family is happy and healthy!! So glad u two are doing the right thing- getting clean! Children are such a precious gift ❀️

  6. Prayers for both of these parents , An prayers for this INNOCENT. child .
    If they want to be better , they have they're reason , their innocent child . temptations are everywhere , I hope they don't take them .

  7. I know all about this. I've been on Methadone 6 yrs havnt touch any drugs at all. i had 2 babies on methadone 2012 and 2015. both ended up in NICU. my heart breaks knowing they are suffering bc if me.. today still in recovery borh kids are happy healty n beautiful…

  8. The parents talk a good game I guarantee you within 3 months of that baby being out of the hospital they will be back on other substances other than prescribed methadone the news said they couldn't even get a hold of them two days later after this viewing!!

  9. I will never understand what is the difference between them taking methadone or any opiate while pregnant. Is it because methadone is legal? The baby is still addicted.

  10. This aint new. All of my grandmother's brothers did heroin. The 70s and 80s and now its a problem because the inner city problems are now wide spread and it back fired on the government

  11. Babies are not born addicted, they can be born dependant. Addiction is psychological dependence is physiological. Babies are not out there turning tricks, stealing or doing other things to get a fix that an ADDICT does. People need to get their terminology right.

  12. My mom has been on methadone for 14 years and she has spent nearly $100,000 on it and it’s been miserable to see her have to take those drugs everyday while we suffer because she don’t have money to pay the bills but money for her drugs. If you love your kids you will find a way to quit.

  13. Hey Morons FYI. Cant just quit because withdrawals cause miscarriages. Got it? Methadone is a lifesaver for both Mom & Baby. So just give Morphine to infant & it suffers no more. Either get educated or keep those asinine comments to yourself

  14. They are born addicted, not by choice, its terrifying. Stop breeding on any drug, methadone too?
    Don't get pregnant! Don't go that to an innocent child.
    When she's 12 and breaks her arm, the doc gives her hydrocodone, what happens?
    She relapses?
    We don't even know yet

  15. I'm on methadone, but I would never let my child go through the agony of opiates over myself. I can't judge because we are all different, I'm just disappointed in the woman.

  16. Using Xanax knowingly during a pregnancy is horrible…being on methadone to stay clean and accidentally becoming pregnant is another story…

  17. Pot LMFAO πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ weed isn't addictive dumbasses, it's habit forming for sure but not addictive

  18. Ever heard of birth control. So u don't get pregnant while trying to clean and taking methadone. The people that are in theses methadone clinics need to require sexually active couples taking methadone need to be on birth control. Take every prevention possible
