Safe Haven Baby Box

For years, Indiana has used “baby boxes” at fire stations and hospitals to give mothers in crisis a way to safely surrender newborns they cannot care for.Soon, Kentucky will have them too.Last week, Gov. Andy Beshear signed into law House Bill 155, the “Safe Haven Baby Box” bill.The bill will allow for the installation of baby boxes at fire stations and hospitals where infants can be surrendered legally and anonymously. An alarm inside the box alerts 911, and first responders can find surrendered children within minutes.
