An unwanted pregnancy can be a devastating experience. You may be overwhelmed, feeling isolated, or be experiencing shame or fear that could lead to irrational thoughts or acts, such as unsafely abandoning your baby.

If you live in the United States and cannot care for your newborn you are allowed to legally and anonymously relinquish the unharmed infant to designated safe havens locations.  All 50 states in America have designated locations where you can safely surrender your unwanted infant.

Safe Haven locations include:
• Hospitals
• Emergency care facilities
• Fire stations
• Police stations – including those on college campuses


If you would like to talk to someone about dropping off your baby at a Safe Haven location please call our 24/7 hotline – 866-99BABY1.  All calls to Safe Haven Baby Boxes crisis line are completely confidential. We are here to help and support you, not judge you.
