Safe Havens for Babies in Vermont

Please Don't Abandon Your Baby. There Is A Better Way.

babyVermont's Baby Safe Haven Law offers you safe places you can give up your baby—anonymously and legally.

To be covered by the law, you must hand your baby, up to 30 days old, to an employee or volunteer of a Safe Haven. For more details, please see "How it Works".

If you are not sure what to do and want help

Please call 1-800-649-4357 during normal business hours. We can answer your questions about the Safe Haven Law.

We can also refer you to a public health nurse in your area who can:

  • Help you find pre-natal care and transportation to pre-natal appointments.
  • Give you advice about your options.
  • Help you find financial assistance and other support if you choose to keep your baby.
  • Refer you to an adoption agency who can help you make an adoption plan for your baby.

If this is an emergency, please call 911.
