Making an Adoption Birth Plan in Texas [With Financial Assistance]

With your hospital plan in place, your support team — including your adoption specialist, any family or friends and the adoptive family — can help protect you, your wishes and help you have the best possible hospital experience. 

Whether you want to start creating a newborn adoption birth plan or want to get more information on what to expect at the hospital, our trusted and experienced adoption specialists are excited for the opportunity to work with you.

What is an Adoption Hospital Plan in Texas? 

The adoption hospital plan is the gospel for your hospital stay. Whatever you express to your adoption specialist as being important for your experience at the hospital will be followed to the letter. The hospital staff and adoptive family will be given a copy of your hospital plan to ensure everyone involved in your stay is on the same page. 

Many of our birth mothers often don’t know what to expect from their hospital stay.  

Who will be at the hospital with me?  

How do I interact with the adoptive family?  

What happens with my baby after birth? 

Those questions and so many more are answered by you, based on what you want out of your experience. 

  • Who do you plan on having at the hospital with you? 
  • Do you want someone in the delivery room with you? 
  • How much time do you want with your baby? 
  • How much time do you want to spend with the adoptive family? 
  • Do you plan to nurse your baby? 
  • Would you like to give your baby and special gifts or keepsakes? 
  • Do you want to take pictures with your baby? With the adoptive family? 
  • Do you plan to leave the hospital before the adoptive family and your baby? 
  • And much more. 

Your adoption birth plan is all about what you want and what you feel most comfortable with. Your experience at the hospital should be smooth, safe and follow any specific requests you have. Your adoption specialist will make sure that your answers are implemented so that you can feel confident, safe and at peace during your hospital stay.

Now, let’s talk about how we help protect you and your adoption hospital plan in Texas. 

We are in Your Corner [How We Protect You and Your Birth Plan for Adoption] 

Whether or not you plan to have someone with you at the hospital, you can breathe easy knowing your adoption specialist will be there to help protect you and ensure your adoption hospital plan in Texas is being followed exactly as you intended.  

Our role during your hospital stay is to be your point person and support, addressing any needs you have, help mediate interaction with the family and to make sure the hospital staff is following your adoption birth plan. 

Remember, because you are in charge of your adoption and birth parent hospital plan, we are here to work for you and make sure you are taken care of. Speak to one of our adoption specialists at 1-800-ADOPTION to find out more about our adoption services and how we protect you at the hospital. 

Your Texas Adoption Birth Plan and the Hospital Staff 

When preparing for the hospital, you may have questions or concerns about working with the nursing staff and whether they’ll be aware or follow your hospital plan. 

Because you’ve chosen to place your baby for adoption with our agency, we will make sure the staff at the hospital you’ve chosen for labor and delivery has a copy of your hospital plan. We will  answer any questions they have to ensure everyone is on the same page. 

The Adoptive Family Follows Your Hospital Plan 

Whether you intend to spend large amounts of time with the adoptive family or would prefer more space, your adoption specialist will make sure they respect your wishes and stick to your Texas birth plan concerning their involvement at the hospital. 

Every birth mom is different. Some prefer less interaction and more privacy at the hospital, and some birth mothers like Jennifer, want the adoptive parents directly involved during the hospital stay. 

“I decided Diane needed to be in the delivery room with me,” Jennifer said. “She was in the delivery room helping and encouraging me. Lauren Marie was born on Wednesday, February 20, 2008, at 9:26 am. I wanted Diane to cut the umbilical cord. It was one of the most magical things in this world and I am glad Diane was there.” 

How much interaction you want with the adoptive family is completely up to you. You can get more information on your adoption hospital plan in Texas and what that means for your contact with the adoptive parents by calling 1-800-ADOPTION

Can I Change my Adoption Hospital Birth Plan in Texas? 

You can always make changes to your hospital plan, even after you’ve already checked in at the hospital.  

Your comfort and experience are the top priority, so you may find that once at the hospital, you need to make changes to certain aspects of your plan to adjust for how you’re feeling. 

For example, you might have indicated in your adoption hospital plan that you want less direct interaction with the adoptive family. But, as you get settled in your room, you find that the extra support and contact would be helpful. Conversely, you may feel as though you need to decrease the amount of planned contact with them. 

You might also decide that you want more time with your baby after delivery. Whatever you feel is best for your hospital experience is what’s most important. 

You can call 1-800-ADOPTION to get more information on how to make changes to your Texas hospital plan, even after you’ve arrived at the hospital.
