How soon after delivery may a birth mother consent to the adoption?

If the birth mother is going to do an out-of-court consent, she may do that after a 72 hour waiting period.

If the birth mother is going to give her consent in court, it may be given whenever the hearing may be scheduled on the judge’s court docket. Is should be noted that, while adoptions are to have the highest priority on the court docket, the hearing may take a short while to schedule.
