Should I Call Child Protective Services?

I have a reasonable suspicion that a friend is abusing her two-year-old son. This same friend is also pregnant with her second child.

I know that calling Child Protective Services is a HUGE deal, but I am generally very concerned about the health and safety of these kids.
