Providing a safe and secure environment to newborn babies and mothers is a crucial function at any hospital. The dominant non-medical threats to a new born baby are abduction and mismatch. Both these reasons cause emotional pain and anguish to affected families. In many cases, it can have life changing impacts.

Nowadays most hospitals have a baby and mother identification process, but no method is foolproof and there is a room for human error. The usual face, voice, fingerprint, or even retina identification methods do not work for new born babies.  Out of the new age technology, the one technology that seems to be accurate and consistent in identifying babies and matching them to correct mothers is radio frequency identification (RFID). An RFID system can accurately identify infants without direct line of sight. Therefore, it is well suited for birthing hospitals with multiple births taking place every hour.
