How to Place Your Baby for Adoption as a Homeless Pregnant Woman

Depending on your circumstances, having a baby can be exciting or terrifying (or both). Going through an unplanned pregnancy can be nerve-wracking, but if you’re homeless or from a low-income family, it’s bound to be more challenging.

When you’re living on the streets, it’s hard to take care of yourself let alone a child. You might not be able to afford the necessary prenatal care (pre-birth medical care). You know you can’t afford a child – you don’t want your child to have a difficult life on the street – so you start looking for a solution to your predicament. Fortunately, there are pregnancy resources for homeless or low-income women, and Adoption Choices of Oklahoma is here to guide you through the adoption process.

Placing Your Baby Up for Adoption as a Homeless Pregnant Woman

The first step in placing your child up for adoption is contacting an adoption agency. You will be assigned a birth parent counselor, who you will meet in person. Your first meeting will allow the counselor to understand what you need financially and what you’re looking for in an adoptive family.

Adoption Choices of Oklahoma can help you pay for rent and groceries, as well as prenatal care. We can also help you apply to receive government resources. You won’t have to worry about finances during the pregnancy.

Your birth parent counselor will help you go through profiles and identify the perfect family for your child. After you give birth, the adoptive parents will be able to provide for your child. You’ll know that your child is with a family that can take care of him/her. Adoption guarantees that your child will have a better life, that he/she will get the love and care he/she needs.

Pregnancy Services for Homeless or Low-Income Women

Different organizations offer different pregnancy resources for women and girls who may be homeless or low on finances. Some groups provide prenatal care, some provide financial aid, and some provide nutrition. Here are some resources available for pregnant, low-income women:

  • The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC): This program provides nutritional education for pregnant and/or breastfeeding mothers from low-income families.
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF): This program provides financial/economic assistance for low-income families with children. The finances can be used to purchase food, medical supplies, clothing, etc.
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP): This program provides income assistance that helps low-income families purchase food.
