A study assessing a Manitoba alcohol rehabilitation program suggests participants are more likely to have their babies taken from them at birth than those who aren't seeking help. The study found a quarter of infants born to women who participated in the InSight program run by the province were seized by Child and Family Services within 72 hours of birth. Family Services Minister Kerri Irvin-Ross says programs like InSight should be celebrated and help families in the long run. (Manitoba's First Nations children's advocate says she worries parents will be deterred from seeking help if they risk losing their children.)
