May 5, 2006, Newsletter Issue #48: Preparing for Placement

Tip of the Week

A birthmother should anticipate, before going into the hospital, how placement will proceed. The time the birthmother has in the hospital will be very emotional and confusing, so planning out the placement will make things go more smoothly. The birthmother should consider the following things: informing the hospital staff of her adoption and birth plans, considering which family members and friends she would like to accompany or visit her in the hospital, how much she wants to care for the child in the hospital (does she was do feed the baby or will the adopting parents participate), what items she would like to take home with her (ID bracelets, baby blankets, etc.). and how she wants to leave the hospital.
