Birth Expenses

In an independent adoption, the adoptive family generally is expected to pay for some or all of the prenatal and birth expenses of the birth mother who is planning to place her child for adoption. In some cases, the adopting family also may be expected to pay reasonable living expenses, including rent and clothing, for the birth mother.
