I am in labor, I just gave birth: Choosing Adoption at Hospital – Last Minute Adoption  

By Jordan Smith 

I am in labor! I just gave birth! I’m considering adoption, help! If you are a woman in a hospital in Nevada and considering adoption, Adoption Choices of Nevada is here to provide information on what you will need to do. Insightful information will be explained on how to begin your adoption process and who you will need to contact when giving up a child for adoption. 

Adoption is a decision only you, the birth mother, can make and if it is something that would be beneficial for you and the baby. During the entirety of the adoption process, you will have full support and guidance from one of our adoption counselors, who will be there to advocate on your behalf.

What Does a Last-Minute Adoption Entail?  

When you are in the hospital and are in labor or have already given birth, and you have considered adoption, then Adoption Choices of Nevada is who you will want to contact. During your conversation with the counselor, she will go through all the options you have before solidifying your decision on adoption.

If adoption is chosen and after you have contacted Adoption Choices of Nevada, you will be appointed a counselor who will go to the hospital to work on your adoption plan with you.

Adoption Support with Nevada Adoption Agency

The type of adoption you seek will be established at that time, and your counselor will go through any resources you may need. These resources include transportation, financial expenses, etc., and you can receive them for up to 6 months post-placement. 

After determining the type of adoption and resources you seek, your adoption counselor will then provide you with a list of different adoption families based on your preferences. If any of the potential families do not resonate with you, then Adoption Choices of Nevada will provide you with more to look at. 

Once the adoptive family has been chosen, you have then finished the matching process. You will not be alone when making any decisions or communicating with communication to the adoptive family. The counselor you were assigned at the beginning of your Reno adoption will be there to guide and support you fully. 

Adoption Choices of Nevada has worked with many different kinds of adoption, from the beginning of pregnancy to last-minute adoptions. We have experience in working with birth mothers at any time adoption may start, and we take pride in offering as much support as we can.

Final Consent for a Last-Minute Adoption in Nevada

After your assigned adoption counselor has arrived at the hospital and you have established your adoption plan, your counselor will go over the necessary paperwork with you. Your counselor will also guide you through the paperwork so you understand what is being presented to you.

During your time at the hospital, your counselor will not only be there to support you through the paperwork but also to advocate on your behalf as well. Depending on the amount of privacy and interactions you entail, your counselor will be there to speak for you while giving up a child for adoption.

After your discharge from the hospital, your counselor will assist you by bringing you to court to walk you through giving your final consent.
