When parents adopt a newborn or have a child through a surrogate in the U.S., they often meet their baby at the hospital. The period leading up to, and just after, your child’s birth is intensely emotional, and involves many practical and legal decisions. Join attorney Peter J. Wiernicki, Esq., in a free surrogacy and domestic adoption webinar to ask your questions about notifying the hospital, the expectant mother’s/carrier’s birth plan, access to the baby and his or her medical records, termination of parental rights in adoption, filing for a birth certificate, discharge, getting ICPC clearance, and more. The Building Your Family Expert Surrogacy and Adoption Webinar: The Hospital Experience was held on Wednesday, June 4, 2014 from 1PM to 2PM EDT.
