If you don’t have anyone to ask for help, there’s a place where you can take your baby and ensure its safety and health: a Safe Haven.
If you are not able to care for your baby, all you have to do is bring your newborn (up to 28 days old) to any Pennsylvania hospital or to a police officer at a police station and drop it off. That’s all. As long as the baby is unharmed and not a victim of any crime, you will not be in any trouble.
At Pottstown Hospital, you may give the infant to any staff member
You may also place the child in the Safe Haven crib inside the main entrance to the hospital's Emergency Department.
No one will ask you any questions, no one will judge you, and no one will say a word about your baby. In fact, you don’t even have to give your name or address. You can provide medical information for the baby. But you don’t have to answer any questions.
