  • CPS would be the ones to call. They need to be made aware of the situation that the baby is in.

    Does the baby have a father? Call him too, if thats possible.

  • Please call either the police, the hospital or Child Protective Services. Don't give that baby back!!! I am almost in tears imagining a poor little newborn crying for it's mom and not getting what it needs. Please stay strong and DO SOMETHING!

  • Call the police first. They will follow the proper procedures and get CPS involved.

  • I agree with everyone who said to call the police. Also can you stay there with her and take care of the baby until she is sober or the police arrive?
