DORAL, FLA. — It breaks our heart when we hear the tragic news of a newborn baby being abandoned and left to die. While no one can fully understand why a person would endanger a vulnerable child, two common denominators present themselves, isolation and denial. The mothers of these infants are usually young and overwhelmed, who panic and feel they have no support.
A Safe Haven for Newborns is the organization in the state, providing education and direct support to mothers about a Florida law that allows for them to deliver their baby, within seven days of birth, to someone at a Safe Haven; any hospital, 24/7 staffed fire rescue station or staffed emergency medical service station. The process will take place with no questions asked, totally anonymous and free from prosecution.
You can help us to spread the word!
