What Services are Available for Birth Mothers Post-Adoption?
By Rachel Smith
After the adoption process is legally finalized, the adoptee goes to live with their new loving family. However, what about the birth mother? Birth mothers may need to heal from the birthing process. They may need mental health support after the strain of adoption, birth, or both. They may need financial assistance. Though the process is legally complete, it is far from over for birth mothers.
Adoption Choices of Texas helps birth mothers all over the state with the adoption process–especially after the adoption. This includes creating an adoption plan, choosing a family, and completing the adoption. Post-placement support is one of the many services the agency provides. The services include everything from financial aid to medical assistance and are 100% free and confidential for birth mothers. If you are a mom considering adoption for your baby, these services are extremely beneficial. Consider contacting a local Adoption Choices of Texas center as soon as possible.
Medical Support for Birth Mothers
Birth mothers don’t just bounce back after birth. Labor is a very draining ordeal, physically and mentally. The body needs time to heal properly. That is why Adoption Choices of Texas provides financial support to help cover medical costs. Along with the costs associated with prenatal care, the adoption agency also covers recovery care. Even if you have already given birth to a child with no prenatal care, adoption is still an option. Medical assistance may still be offered, depending on your situation. These costs are paid for by private insurance, the state, and the adoptive family in that order.
Adoption is 100% free for the birth mother, so these moms can focus on receiving quality medical attention and recovery.
Financial Aid for Birth Mothers
Though medical care is important, Adoption Choices of Texas can also provide general financial support. The private adoption agency provides birth mothers with personal adoption counselors that will help determine their personal and financial needs. If you are dealing with an unexpected secret pregnancy or unsafe home situation, our agency can help. We can provide safe housing for birth mothers up to a month after the adoption process is finalized. We provide rent payments to birth mothers that are struggling with keeping their existing homes. This service will allow the fridge to stay full, as our Texas adoption agencies also provide grocery assistance. Safe shelter is essential to the health of birth mothers and babies. Diet is essential to positive baby growth and healthy life in general.
Our agencies go above and beyond to resolve these conflicts and ensure a stable environment for babies and birth moms. Contact an adoption agency in Dallas or near you to learn more about our assistance.
Counseling for Birth Mothers
Birth mothers deal with many emotions throughout the adoption process. They make the challenging choice of adoption, debate on an adoptive family to select, and finally, send their baby off. Some birth mothers may go through labor on top of this. These events can be very overwhelming and emotionally challenging, which is why Adoption Choices of Texas offers emotional support. Our local adoption agencies create a safe space for birth mothers to process their emotions. Our counselors work with birth mothers through their many emotional hurdles and obstacles.
Counseling is available whenever the birth mother needs it, even if they do not take advantage immediately after the adoption. Like many of our services, counseling is 100% free to the birth mother. The counselors at our Texas adoption centers do not judge and treat you with the respect you deserve. Birth mothers do not need to struggle with these feelings alone. Adoption Choices of Texas is here for you.
Communicating with the Adoptee
In the adoption plan, birth mothers get to choose a type of communication after the adoption is finalized. These communication plans range from open, semi-open, and closed. As with many private adoptions in Texas, birth parents get to choose which plan best fits them. Giving up your baby does not need to be the end.
Open allows for direct contact with the family. Semi-open is in direct contact with the adoptive family through the agency. Closed adoptions permit zero communication between the families. Whether you communicate with the adoptee or not is your decision. Depending on your choice, the local agencies will help you communicate with the adoptee or adoptive family if you wish. It is the birth mother’s choice and our support.
Choosing Adoption in Texas
Giving your child up for adoption doesn’t mean the end. The adoption process may end with the adoptee joining a new family, but the support doesn’t stop there. Adoption Choices of Texas is dedicated to assisting birth mothers in various situations. We offer medical assistance, financial assistance, counseling, and communication plans. Our post-placement services are offered at no cost to the birth mother. If you are interested in any of these services, don’t hesitate to contact an adoption agency in Dallas or near you.
