What are birth mother living expense and why do I pay them?
Many families do not understand what birth mother living expenses are or why they pay them.
There is a misconception that it is like “paying the birth mother for choosing adoption,” which is completely false.
Birth mother living expenses are court-approved moneys provided by adoptive families to birth mothers to help cover their pregnancy-related costs.
Women who place for adoption usually cannot financially support a baby and sometimes even themselves. That is why they choose adoption.
