Financial strain is often a concern for many pregnant women considering adoption in Kentucky. Some worry, “Does it cost to give a child up for adoption in Kentucky? How much is it to put a baby up for adoption?”
If this is something you’ve worried about, you should know that it’s 100 percent free to place a child for adoption in Kentucky.
Additionally, many women considering adoption are financially struggling to support themselves or older children, and they’ve asked, “Do you get paid for putting a baby up for adoption in Kentucky?”
The answer to that question is no. The payment for the placement of a child for adoption is illegal. There are no Kentucky adoption agencies that pay you in exchange for placing your child.
However, there are birth mother living expenses that some women considering adoption in Kentucky may qualify for, which cover the costs of pregnancy, birth and more. Here’s what you should know:
The cost of pregnancy and childbirth alone can be high. This is why American Adoptions takes care of all pregnancy and adoption-related expenses for you. Services provided for birth mothers in Kentucky through American Adoptions may include:

Pregnancy is mentally, physically, emotionally and financially draining. We’re here to help support you in any way we can.
While all legal, counseling and medical services are provided to prospective birth mothers for free, the amount of adoption financial assistance you can qualify for is determined by the state based on several factors, including:
Your current living situation and whether or not you have any dependents
Your current income situation and whether you’re a single- or dual-income household
Additional living expenses limits established by Kentucky adoption law, which can vary by county
Pregnancy and birth are expensive, even if you have medical insurance, and pregnancy makes it difficult to work. Kentucky adoption living expenses help ease the financial burden put on expectant mothers during their pregnancy.
Any adoption financial assistance has to be approved through a Kentucky court to ensure that birth parent expenses are deemed reasonable and necessary.
Remember, adoption is free for women exploring their unplanned pregnancy options. You may also receive birth parent expenses so you can take the bills off of your mind while you’re creating your baby’s adoption plan for their future.
