Taking Care of You
Following the delivery and relinquishment of your baby, depending on the plan you created, you may receive assistance for your confinement period (usually 6 weeks following delivery). The assistance you receive will be to help you during your recovery from the birth of the baby. The adoptive family can help to provide you with housing, food, utilities, transportation and clothing, so you can recover from your delivery and start the plans for your future. You will discuss this plan with your caseworker and social worker based on your needs and situation. Each state has different laws regarding adoption and assistance, so it will be important to talk with knowledgeable adoption professionals.
