A woman, or her agent, can relinquish her unharmed infant, less than 30 days old, at a Safe Haven location and that person will not face criminal charges. She must hand her baby to a person or, if available at certain hospitals only, she may place her baby in a Safe Haven drawer. She must tell the worker that this is a safe haven baby. No questions about her identity will be asked.
Safe Haven locations are:
- any Hospital
- any Ambulance
- any on-duty Fire Station
- any Designated Church (must have signage posted)
- any Designated Adoption Agency (must have signage posted)
