Drug overdose deaths among pregnant and postpartum women increased more than 180% in the past five years, according to a new study conducted at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. The analysis also revealed that the number of pregnancy-associated overdose deaths reached a record high in 2020, likely exacerbated by social, economic, and health care disruptions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The findings are published in JAMA.
