Since 1972, the year of the inaugural issue of Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic, & Neonatal Nursing, substance use during pregnancy has remained a public health concern in the United States. This concern is currently exacerbated by factors such as the opioid and stimulant use crisis and widening health and social inequities for many women and families. The purposes of this historical commentary are to describe trends in the perception of women with substance use disorder and their infants and related sociolegal implications and to trace the evolution of related nursing practice and research during the past 50 years. We provide recommendations and priorities for practice and research, including further integration of support for the mother–infant dyad, cross-sectoral collaborations, and equity-oriented practices and policies.
