opiates and pregnancy

I take Subutex for Opiate Dependence and am pregnant. I need to find a specialist to advise me on pregnancy and opiate dependence, but no one knows who I should talk to. The Subutex is from a psychiatrist with little knowledge of pregnancy, and my pregnancy doctor referred me (incorrectly) to a pain specialist who didn't know what to do.

What kind of specialist do I need to see in order to help me taper safely and successfully off or Subutex while pregnant?

Thank you!
