We will usually write to the hospital Social Worker (with your permission of course) to let them know of your birth plan. We do this so the hospital staff know ahead of time what your wishes are in respect to privacy, and the Adoptive Parents interaction with you and the baby.
The hospital Social Workers meet with all new mothers and it is usually easier for you if they know what your plans are with regards to the Adoption. If they dont know they will ask questions which are irrelevant, such as do you have a car seat to take the baby home in? It is just easier, and less awkward for you, if the Social Worker knows ahead of time what to expect. You can expect the hospital Social Workers to meet with you and provide emotional support if you need it. In addition, you will have your Adoption Specialist, who will have supported you through your Adoption journey to this point, at the hospital to provide you with support and act as your advocate.
