Pregnancy Options: Lifetime Can Help

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on November 7, 2014

Being pregnant means eating for two and getting the right medical care. Both of these things can be very expensive. Even the smaller things you will need during your pregnancy, such as prenatal vitamins and maternity clothes, may be costly. If you have already looked into your pregnancy options and know that adoption is right for you but are worried you simply can’t afford the costs of being pregnant, please know that you can get help!

Lifetime Adoption has been helping and supporting birthmoms through their pregnancy and with their search for an adoptive family since 1986. Their services are available nationwide, and are free for birthparents. Adoptive parents pay for legal fees, reasonable pregnancy-related expenses, medical bills not covered by insurance, consulting, and counseling fees. Lifetime can also help you find resources to meet your non-medical needs, such as help with living expenses, school supplies, household items, and maternity clothes.
