Plan of Safe Care Materials
The Birth Planning Kit is a personal folder that can help you stay organized, prepare a packet of materials to share with the Department of Children and Families, and support you on your journey of recovery and pregnancy. This folder is for you, but you may want to work through the materials with someone you trust. The Birth Planning Kit contains a Recovery and Wellness Plan, and a sample DCF portfolio, which can serve as your Plan of Safe Care.

You can choose who can share information, what information they’re allowed to share, and the time frame during which they’re allowed to communicate.
