Baby Tagging

Baby Tagging

Prevents the rising risk of infant abduction in hospital maternity wards, providing peace of mind for families and midwives by ensuring a safe environment for vulnerable babies.

What is Baby Tagging?

Essential in the modern day hospital, electronic baby tagging systems are used by maternity wards around the world to protect vulnerable new-borns from the risk of abduction.

Although abduction attempts are rare, they are on the rise and occur due to a number of reasons including drug and alcohol abuse, psychological disorders, custodial issues and ransom endeavours.

The physical and emotional implications a successful abduction can have on families and midwives are substantial and the negative public publicity that evolves as a result can cause irreversible damage to the hospital’s image and reputation, making abduction prevention a key priority for NHS trusts and hospitals worldwide.

Our baby tagging systems are used to protect thousands of new-born babies across the world, every day.
