Changing Your Mind

If you change your mind or have questions about the baby, call:

Division of Children and Family Services - 1-800-562-5624.

Explain that you transferred your baby under the Safety of Newborn Children Law.

  • Provide the date that you transferred your child.
  • Provide the location of the transfer (hospital or fire station/city).
  • You may be asked to provide the child's bracelet number for verification. You will then be provided with the name and number of the child's social worker.

If you have transferred a child under this law, you have not committed a crime and you will not be referred to law enforcement.
