Mothers Who Give Birth In Italy

Postby jennabet » 11 Aug 2014, 18:03

Perhaps the following information might provide some insight to adoptees who have been unsuccessful in locating their birth parents in Italy.

A mother who gives birth in Italy has up to ten days to decide whether to recognize her child. If not, the baby will be handed to social services. "We urge everyone to remember that the law says all women have the right to give birth safely in hospital and they're not required to recognize the child if they don't want to", said Police Captain Feruccio Nardacci.

The above information was recently provided to the public after a homeless Brazilian woman gave birth in a public park and neighbors heard her screaming and called the police.
