How much financial assistance can the birth mother receive?

Financial assistance is available for reasonable living expenses of the birth mother which she is unable to pay due to unemployment, underemployment or disability.  Reasonable living expenses are rent, utilities, basic telephone service, food, toiletries, necessary clothing, transportation, insurance, and expenses found by the court to be necessary for the health and well-being of the birth mother and the unborn child.  Such expenses may be paid during the pregnancy and for a period of up to 6 weeks postpartum.
