If your baby suffered from withdrawal symptoms after being exposed to opioids in the womb, this doesn’t make you make a bad mom. It makes you a mom who loves her child with all her heart, but has struggled with a chronic medical condition that requires extensive treatment to overcome.
Before opening Bee Home Pediatrics, Dr. Diaz-Ochu helped treat infants recovering from in utero opioid exposure through the University of Utah SUPeRAD program. Her ability to not only medically wean newborns off opioids, but also provide their parents with psychological and emotional support helped improve outcomes for families across the Salt Lake City region.
Dr. Diaz-Ochu’s commitment to ensuring moms and babies received ongoing care after discharge inspired her to make neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome (NOWS) management a cornerstone of her new private practice. Today, Dr. Diaz-Ochu offers a multidisciplinary approach to treating NOWS that focuses on monitoring your baby’s health, offering soothing and calming techniques to help ease their symptoms, screening for neurodevelopment complications, and recommending medical interventions if needed—in addition to all the healthcare services you can expect from an experienced pediatrician.
Just as important as caring for your baby is caring for you. As you continue on your own road to recovery, Dr. Diaz-Ochu will be by your side with the support and encouragement you need. She’s not here to judge your past, but celebrate the steps you’re taking to improve your entire family’s well-being.
As a mom, you’re the best treatment for your baby during the critical time. By providing quality care in a comfortable, trusting environment, Dr. Diaz-Ochu will work with you to overcome the impact of opioids on your new family and empower you to become a confident caregiver to help your baby thrive.
