Don’t want your baby?

Arizona law allows you to leave your baby up to 72 hours after birth with a “safe haven provider” at places chosen by law as “safe havens”.  You can read more about these programs for newborns at http://safehaven.tv/states/arizona/ .  Or, call toll-free at 1-888-510-BABY (2229) to find out more.

Arizona’s state law is in ARS section 13-3623.01. “Safe haven for newborn infants; definitions” and is online.  Arizona’s other laws (called the Arizona Revised Statutes) are at http://www.azleg.gov/ArizonaRevisedStatutes.asp .

The Arizona Department of Health Services also has some useful information to help you through pregnancy and after the baby is born.
