Second Baby Box installed in Prague

On Monday, a second baby box was installed in Prague. The baby box provides a place where mothers can safely put newly born babies that they see themselves unwilling or unable to care for. The newest one is located at the Prague 2 town hall. It is the first in the entire Czech Republic located outside of a hospital. Prague’s first baby box was installed in 2005. Since then, 15 babies have been placed in it - to date the highest number at any location in the country. The new baby box site will be functional from March 8.
