What is an Adoption Birth Plan?
Are you experiencing an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy and need solutions to ease through your birth delivery? Here at Adoption Choices of Oklahoma, we support our birth mothers in choosing an adoption hospital/birth plan as an option. It takes a caring mother like you to think of where and how you will pursue a birth plan for your baby. An adoption hospital/birth plan is the last stage in the adoption process. It allows birth mothers to make arrangements that will help them physically and mentally go through the stages of childbirth. Our adoption birth plan provides you with a step-by-step process to learn and embrace the solutions Oklahoma adoption has for you. When placing your baby for adoption, a birth plan plays a vital role in reducing stress and anxiety levels during pregnancy. Therefore, there is no need to panic. We can help you!
Ways Oklahoma’s Adoption Birth Plan Will Guide You Through Your Pregnancy
Think of how you wish your birth plan could be–a less painful and stressful labor process. Take a deep breath and fasten your seatbelt–you are on your way to the adoption journey! The adoption journey is unique to each person, and we are always here to help you. Leave it up to Adoption Choices of Oklahoma to guide you through your birth delivery process. Ready to take the first step? Great! Start by making a list of your preferences, like which hospital you want to give birth to. Next, include any medical procedures you prefer when you go into labor. For instance, you can decide if you want a natural delivery or episiotomy. Then contact your nearest adoption agency to connect with an adoption specialist. Questions you should ask to have an idea of how you can lay out your birth plan include:
- What is the best hospital to accommodate all my medical needs during pregnancy?
- Who will I want or prefer to be present during the delivery?
- Is there a recommended nutrition plan I should consider before and after giving birth?
- Do I want pain management treatments?
We want you to know that any outcome you desire for your birth plan is possible. Yes, you can consult your doctor from the hospital you choose about any of these concerns causing you emotional distress. There are also different nutrition plans suitable for every birth mother’s health. Anyone can be present during your birth delivery at the hospital. This can include the adoptive parents/family you choose during the adoption process. It is essential that you address any issues you fear may harm you and your baby. Don’t be afraid to discuss preferred methods to manage the stages of your pregnancy.
How You Can Make Adjustments to Your Birth Plan Decision-Making Process
Need to add or make changes to your birth plan? Don’t worry. You are granted the flexibility to add or make changes to your adoption birth plan. We understand that circumstances you may go through will interfere with your choices. It is highly recommended that any preferences you wish to adjust should be consulted with your adoption specialist. Remember, this is your pregnancy, and you have a right to choose the best birth plan that safely works for you. In the meantime, think of strategies to keep track of your birth plan progress. Use a daily journal or list your birth plan options and stick it to your refrigerator door. Take these steps to encourage yourself to boost your strength and confidence during the adoption process.
Benefits of Your Post-Adoption Hospital Birth Plan
You have accomplished your goal of making the right decisions for your birth plan, but wait, there’s more! After your child’s birth, you can still be in control of other rights as a mother. These rights include deciding on your baby’s name and keeping your baby temporarily before being given to the adoptive parents. The name you choose for your baby can be on the original birth certificate. Remember that the adoptive parents can change your baby’s name over time.
You are entitled to get any updated information about your child. Depending on your preferred level of adoption, you can decide how to keep in touch with the adoptive parents. If you have a semi-open adoption or mediated adoption, you communicate with the adoptive parents through your adoption agency or third party. An open adoption plan has more options available that allow you to contact the adoptive parents directly. This can be done through phone calls, emails, and face-to-face visitations. If you have a closed adoption plan, your adoption rights are maintained. This means personal or private information between you, the adoptive parents, and your child will not be disclosed.
