This is your choice! You can decide how much openness you would like with the family and how often you would like updates sent to you. An open adoption allows you to meet the adoptive parents before making your decision and there can be direct correspondence both before your child is born and after placement as your child grows. A closed adoption would include no contact after birth and contact information would not be exchanged.

Birth mothers often decide on the level of openness with the adoptive couple after they’ve had time to get to know one another. Our office is here to help you make those decisions and navigate those conversations.
7. Can the adoptive mother attend prenatal appointments with me?Broz2020-06-17T11:28:22-05:00
Yes! Often times when the adoptive mother and birth mother live near one another they can attend prenatal appointments together if the birth mother chooses to include her. We find this to be a special time for the adoptive mother and expectant mother!
