Consider to give up your baby without anyone knowing? h2>
If you have nowhere to go and you have decided to give up your babyby to leaving him or her unprotected, you can decide to leave the baby in a special Beschermde Wieg room . The Beschermde Wieg rooms can be found at different locations. Your baby will be welcomed warm and safe, and we will take good car. Is there needed medical care? Immediatly we take car of that of course.
You can open the door yourself and enter the room. In the room you will find a crib and a chair. Take the time to recover your breath.
There is a poster on the wall showing you in 4 images how to proceed. Take your time to read it carefully. You can also find these images on our site.
There is an intercom to the left of the poster. When you press the button, the female volunteer who takes care of the room, the so called Beschermde Wieg-mother, will come to you. If you don’t want to tell us your name, that’s fine. Everything you say will be confidential. If you choose not to see or speak with anyone, we will respect that. There is also the possibility to have no contact at all.
In the crib there is a form where you can leave your personal details. This is important for your baby, if he or she later wants to know who his or her biological mother (or father) is.
There will also be a letter in the crib. You must take the letter with you. This letter contains important information. Read it carefully when you get home. This letter can help you get the support you need.
When leaving the room without contacting the Beschermde Wieg mother, please know your baby will be well cared for and received with warmth and love. The Beschermde Wieg mother will be there in a few minutes. The Beschermde Wieg mother will then go directly to the hospital for a medical checkup with your baby. After this your baby will go to a foster home.
