There is a lot of information available about
adoption. It’s not difficult to find information on how to help an adopted
child assimilate into a new home, how to manage interstate adoption, who
to talk to regarding private adoption, how to manage post-adoption stress,
etc. There are never ending articles filled with advice for new adoptive
parents advising them what to expect and what to expect, helping them
prepare, offering checklists of what to do and what not to do, and more.
What isn’t as readily available is
information for birth mothers.
What is a birth mother? A birth mother is any woman who gives birth to
a child, as opposed to an adoptive mother – a biological mother.
Firstly, birth mothers should know that those of us experienced in the
field have nothing but respect for your ability to bravely address your
situation and that we respect your final decision regardless of what you
decide. Birth mothers considering adoption for their unborn children have
a wide variety of reasons behind their choice. One of the many reasons
is that the pregnancy might be unplanned.
An unplanned pregnancy can be extremely difficult for birth mothers and
ascertaining exactly who to trust to discuss the situation with can seem
nearly impossible. It’s important that you are aware of your legal
rights and options and that you discuss them with a knowledgeable family
law attorney experienced in situations very similar to yours. At Arizona
Family Law Attorneys, you will find birth mother services with every intention
of keeping you fully informed of your rights – your legal options.
We are available for birth mothers throughout their pregnancy and after
the birth of the baby.
When searching for birth mother services make sure to require:
- Access to reputable and experienced adoption counselors.

plan for you and the baby.
