Forming a Hospital Plan for Birth Mothers
How do I complete a hospital plan? What will it be like at the hospital with an adoption plan for my baby? What does a hospital plan consist of? How do I even begin to create one? We are here to support you during the Oklahoma adoption process and to answer all of your questions. A hospital plan is when you work with your adoption caseworker to highlight your needs and wants during the birth and after delivery. It allows us to know that your needs and wants will be taken care of while you are with us.
You may be thinking about many different things, such as: will I need pain medications? How many birth options do I have? Which hospitals should I choose? Who is my emergency contact? You may have all these questions and more, and we are here to support you during the adoption process to discuss how you want your hospital plan to look. Aside from your adoption caseworker, your birth parent counselor will also be there to support you during the adoption process with all your emotional needs.
It is important that you are given many different hospital options so that it can be a little easier to form your hospital plan. Adoption Choices of Oklahoma can help!
Meeting Your Needs During the Adoption Process
When giving a baby up for adoption, it is important that your needs are met during the adoption process, including the hospital plan. It’s also important to understand you are not giving up! Your adoption caseworker and birth parent counselor will work with you to go through the hospital plan in terms of your expectations for the day. This includes things such as pain medication and the hospital you would like to give birth in—also, your emergency contact, which could be anyone you trust.
When forming the hospital plan, it is important that anybody you choose to be your emergency contact can be relied upon, and we will help you to choose an appropriate person. No matter the circumstances, we will be able to provide for your every need.
We want to ensure that you know what a hospital plan entails in terms of stating what you would like and also how the plan is carried out. Your adoption caseworker will make your requests practicable and make sure that you feel safe and well on the day.
On the day, we will do everything in our power to make sure that everything goes exactly how you would want it to. We are here for you!
Will The Adoptive Family Fit into Your Birth Plan?
To answer the question, it depends on the type of adoption that you choose. It is possible to have the adoptive family in the room, such as in a semi-open adoption, or an open adoption, as you will have some contact with the adoptive family. This would not be possible in a closed adoption.
Even in a semi-open, or an open adoption, there will be certain things that will and won’t be possible. Anything laid out in the contract that specifies that the adoptive parents should or should not be in the birth room will be done. If you would like the adoptive family to be involved, that will surely be possible.
It will be important to speak to your adoption caseworker and your birth parent counselor about the expectations on the birthday so that the plan you envision can happen. You will be able to decide how many people you want in the hospital room as well.
Expectations of the Adoption Team
Your adoption team will be there to ensure your every comfort, no matter what it is. You will work with your adoption team to ensure that the day goes as planned as far as possible. There will be no trouble because your adoption team will be there to support you through it all.
