Hayley Friedman, MD

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics

Washington University in St. Louis (WU)

My academic clinical focus includes supporting pregnant women with Opioid Use Disorder and their infants with NOWS (Neonatal Opioid Withdrawal Syndrome). As a member of the CARE Clinic at BJH, I perform prenatal consultations to support and empower women with OUD to pursue recovery and look forward to the care of their newborn. I am the Director of the NAS Neurodevelopment Clinic at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, and am also a site PI for an NIH funded clinical trial focusing on shortening duration of pharmacologic management of infants with NOWS. Over the past several years, I have also participated in a state-wide collaborative to implement a new methodology of care, known as Eat, Sleep, Console Methodology, for infants with NOWS at BJH and St. Louis Children’s. My clinical research focuses on the medical care and neurodevelopmental outcomes of infants with Neonatal Opioid Withdrawl Syndrome.
