Placing your baby for adoption

Placing your baby for adoption

 

If you are thinking about adoption for your baby, we’d urge you to get in touch with us for advice, support and help. We can give you all the information and assistance that you need to help you, both whilst you are pregnant and after the baby is born.

 

If you prefer, you could ask your midwife or GP to get in touch with us on your behalf.

 

We will do all we can to support you to do what’s right for you, at your pace. If you need to talk in-depth first, we can talk to you. If you already know exactly what you want to do, we can go through your options with you.

 

If you do decide to go ahead, a social worker will help you plan your baby's adoption, taking into account your wishes and feelings about what you would like for your baby. The social worker will help you to find out about, and understand, the law surrounding adoption and about the whole adoption process; how it happens, what to expect and what support you can receive, now and in the future.

 

Please call us on 01234 718718 or email us at adoptionandfostering@bedford.gov.uk so we can have a chat to you today.
