You will be saying goodbye to your baby. We encourage you to say “hello” and spend time with your baby before you place him or her with the adoptive family you have chosen. Time in the hospital can be used to feed him or her, change, sing, snuggle, and rock your baby. However you wish to spend this time is up to you! Many birth mothers ask for 24 hours to be with the baby just by herself, and take pictures. We encourage you to bring a special outfit for the baby and dress him or her. You do not want to regret later on not having that special time. Birth mothers who take the time at the hospital to be with their child have a very precious memory that stays with them forever.
