1. In Pennsylvania the last 5 years there was a 250% increase in babies born with substance abuse issues. Babies who are born addicted to opiates, and other drugs, are often left to fight it out on their own - due to their mothers not wanting/not being able to care for them. One nurse noticed this growing problem and decided to start a volunteer program. Jane Cavanaugh worked to enlist citizens to come to the hospital and hold, snuggle, soothe newborns going through withdrawal. Have you heard about this?
2. Do you think this sounds like a beneficial program?
3. There are similar programs in California, Texas, and Chicago. Does this sound like something you would sign up to do?
