I’m in Labor and want to make an adoption plan. How do I do that?
Going into labor can be overwhelming. Especially if you are unsure of your options or don’t have a plan in place to parent. You may even be thinking; I don’t know if I can do this, I don’t know if I want my baby, or how do I find a family for my baby. That’s alright, it’s not too late to discuss your options or to make a plan for your child. You are not alone. If you’re in labor and want to make an adoption plan, we can help.
How do I make the right decision?
It is normal to struggle with the decision to place your child for adoption, and many women who make this choice love their child and DO want their baby but don’t know if they are equipped or if they desire to parent at this time. Others may not even know the first step to take in making an adoption plan. If this is you, take a deep breath, and know that we can help.
Who can help?
The first step is to reach out to a Pregnancy Counselor. You can text or call us directly or even ask the hospital to reach out for you. Reaching out doesn’t have to be stressful – someone can talk to you on the phone and can visit you at the hospital. Meeting with a Pregnancy Counselor does not commit you to making an adoption plan and can happen whenever is best for you (i.e. while you are in labor, after baby is born). They will help you explore both of your options and determine what the next step is in your plan.
If you’re in labor and want to make an adoption plan, reach out to our team today and we can help you understand all your options for this child. We are available 24/7 by live chat, text, or phone at 1-800-875-5595. Or you can submit a request for one of our Pregnancy Counselors to reach out to you.
