Do Birth Mothers Get Financial Help for Adoption?

Yes, Florida adoption law allows for financial support during the pregnancy and for six weeks after birth. These funds are provided to cover pregnancy costs and reasonable living expenses.

The expectant mother is not paid money in exchange for placing a child up for adoption. Rather, the adoptive parents are paying the expectant mother’s expenses to support a healthy lifestyle and environment for the mother and the unborn child.  

All expenses must be reported to and approved by the court. 

This living expense aid covers all areas of the birth mother’s life, including rent, food, toiletries, clothing, transportation, medical, counseling, and any other costs found by the court to be necessary for the health and well-being of the birth mother and her unborn child.
