Baby Nest

Did you know Leipzig has this thing called Baby Nest where a woman can drop off her baby if she has decided she doesn’t want it? I had never heard of this before, but apparently 200 babies (nationwide) have been dropped off since its inception. The baby is immediately and anonymously taken into custody and kept for 2 months by the hospital before putting it up for adoption. In that time, the mother can return and change her mind.
