Stephenie Ochsenbine and James Woods have been reunited with their newborn , Abigale, who was kidnapped after a knife attack, but the ordeal has brought safety issues surrounding birth celebrations to national attention.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children recommends the following measures to ensure a joyous celebration of a baby's arrival does not turn into tragedy:

  • Birth announcements in the newspaper or online should never include the family's home address, and should only include the parent's last names, not their first names.
