What is an Adoption Hospital Plan?

An adoption hospital plan is a personalized document with an adoption plan created by the birth mother in collaboration with her adoption professional. It outlines her preferences for her hospital stay, the birth of her child, and the adoption process. This plan empowers birth mothers to make informed decision. It also ensures that their wishes are respected during this emotional and significant time.

Hospital Choices for Birth Mothers

When creating an adoption hospital plan, birth mothers have several choices to consider. These choices may include:

1. Birth Plan Preferences

Birth mothers can specify their preferences for labor and delivery, including who they want to be present during the birth, whether they desire pain management options, and any special requests for the birthing experience.

2. Contact with Adoptive Parents

Birth mothers can decide whether they want to meet the adoptive parents before or after the birth and how much contact they wish to have with them during their hospital stay. This may include visits, phone calls, or written communication.

3. Time with the Baby

Birth mothers can choose how much time they want to spend with their baby after birth. Some may opt for immediate skin-to-skin contact and bonding, while others may prefer to have the adoptive parents present from the beginning.

4. Feeding Preferences

Birth mothers can indicate their preferences for feeding the baby, whether they choose to breastfeed or formula-feed. They can also discuss their wishes regarding the baby’s feeding schedule and any special instructions for the adoptive parents.

5. Hospital Discharge

Birth mothers can plan the logistics of their hospital discharge, including whether they want to leave before or after the baby and who will accompany them home.
