What is an Adoption Birth Plan?

By Auroura Warner

You are facing an unplanned pregnancy and cannot care for a child or simply don’t want it. After looking at all of your available options, you decide that adoption is the best option for both of you. Adoption is never an easy process. It is a difficult journey for every birth mother. There are many steps that you have to work through for an adoption plan to work and follow through. You decide to take a look at what your next steps are to begin your adoption process.

What is a Birth Plan?

Essentially, a birth plan is a document that describes what you, the birth mother, want during your delivery. There’s a lot of information covered regarding your needs during the different processes during pregnancy, including delivery and labor. Birth plans are necessary for everyone involved in your pregnancy to know what is happening at each step and to best support you. A birth plan will also help you feel more in control and relaxed about this whole process!

What’s in a Birth Plan?

There are many factors involved when creating a birth plan. You need to think about some things such as labor information, standard details, and post-care operations. Having all of those elements will make for a complete birth plan that will allow your pregnancy to go smoother. 

Standard Details

When thinking of what to include in your birth plan, you should include standard details at the very minimum. These are details such as you, the birth mother’s, name, insurance information, contact info, healthcare provider, and more. You could even include us, Adoption Choices of Florida, as your adoption agency. 

Labor Information

After the standard details are taken care of, you can start looking at the labor information. These are the details that will affect your environment during labor and how your process will go. You should think of different components that will affect your labor processes such as who your doctors are, what your support team looks like, the environment you will be in, the atmosphere of the room, what tools will be used, what birth method you want, and more. Taking care of these elements will make your pregnancy a lot easier and clear everything up for all participating parties. 

Post Pregnancy Care Support

After the operation, you will want to think of who and what will be there for you to help you. You will probably want a support team to help you through these times. Delivering a baby is never an easy process, so it is important to have someone there to support you. Usually, hospitals limit how many people can be in a room at a time, but you can always request support whenever you need it. Aside from the support team, you may want to consider pain management help. Taking certain medications approved by the healthcare team may help you ease pain after labor and delivery. After giving birth, you can also take a look at different adoption options to consider what your next steps are.

The whole process of pregnancy, creating a hospital plan, going through labor, delivery, and most importantly, adoption are always difficult decisions that create many negative feelings. That’s why Adoption Choices of Florida is here to support and aid you. We will be here for you to provide information, emotional help, or any other services you may require.
