Safe Place for Newborns

Mothers, or someone with their permission, may leave unharmed newborns at a hospital or health care facility that provides urgent care or with an ambulance dispatched in response to a 9-1-1 call. Medical staff will give shelter, health care and aid to the newborn. Safe Place for Newborns provides an anonymous alternative for mothers to safely give up their newborns except if the baby is born in a hospital, has been harmed or is over seven days old.
