Per federal1 and state requirements to support infants, pregnant/parenting people, and their families, a Plan of Safe Care must be developed for all infants affected by prenatal drug or fetal alcohol exposure. A Plan of Safe Care is a critical tool – not only for every infant born exposed to prenatal substance exposure, but for all pregnant/parenting people and their infants. Developed collaboratively with the pregnant/parenting person, a Plan of Safe Care coordinates existing supports and referrals to new services to help infants and families stay supported and connected when they leave the hospital.
