Subutex & Pregnancy


I have a friend who is in her first trimester of pregnancy. She is/has been buying Subutex off the street for over 2 years now. She has decided to continue using Subutex during her pregnancy. I understand that it is very dangerous for the baby to quit this drug cold turkey, but I am afraid of the affect this will have on her baby once it's born - especially since she does not plan on informing her doctor. My main question is what will the effects have on her baby once it's born? And is there a medication that the doctor would give the newborn if he knew the mother's addiction to the drug?
