If you are considering adoption as one of your unplanned pregnancy options in Louisiana, knowing your potential expenses is essential to making an informed decision about your future. While choosing adoption can feel overwhelming and daunting, it doesn’t have to be. Understanding how finances work throughout the process can provide clarity and security as you prepare for your adoption journey. At St. Elizabeth Foundation, we know that finances can be a concern for birth mothers. This is why we are here to provide financial assistance following Louisiana laws. Learn how we provide financial and emotional support so you can go into the experience feeling safe, secure, and informed.
What Expenses Could You Face?
Another expense to consider is birth planning. As a birth mother, you may wonder how you will cover the cost of prenatal care, delivery, and postnatal care. Our agency covers these expenses, ensuring that birth mothers receive the medical care they need throughout their pregnancy and after delivery. We start by working with you to determine the birth plan that is right for you. Then, we help you access the best possible medical care so you can focus on your wellbeing and the health of your baby. We can also offer financial assistance to cover out-of-pocket expenses that aren’t covered by Medicaid or your private insurance.
Additional Financial Assistance
In addition to the care we offer at St. Elizabeth Foundation, several Louisiana funding programs may assist you. For example, the Federal Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant funds programs that can assist with primary and preventative care. Or, the Title X family planning program helps pregnant mothers access free or discounted medical care. The program helps connect participants to inclusive, high-quality, and affordable services centered around reproductive health.
How St. Elizabeth Foundation Supports Birth Mothers
As an adoption agency specializing in infant adoptions, we know that every birth mother’s situation is unique. We take pride in offering individualized support, including financial support for living, medical, legal, and counseling costs. Our goal is to remove the financial burden from birth mothers so they can focus on their health and make the best decision for their babies.
It’s important to remember that financial support is just one part of what we offer at St. Elizabeth Foundation. We also provide free counseling resources to our birth mothers before and after the adoption. During our counseling sessions, we discuss all unplanned pregnancy options available to you in Louisiana. We explain the benefits of open, semi-open, and closed adoption and help you find the right solution. Then, we work with you to map out the birth and adoption plan that is most comfortable for you.
We understand that adoption can be an emotional process, and we are committed to offering support every step of the way. Our counseling services give birth mothers a safe space to discuss their options, work through the varying emotions of adoption, and process their experience after placement.
