I saw this term used on a site that offers adoption gifts. LIFE mother. Sounds less impersonal that "birth" mother, and a more accurate description that "natural" or assigning ordinal positions to mothers (as in "first" mother.
Wouldn't it be great if this was a term the whole triad would love? I really like it!!

Because Infant adoption and foster adoption is lumped under the same word "Adoption", I have to agree with the poster above me. (I wish foster adoption had a different word than adoption, because I feel the two are completely different.)
I reject the idea that birth mother is impersonal, giving birth is very intimate and personal. I also reject that being a birth mother limits me to birth. Giving birth is HUGE! Many adoptive moms would give their right arms to be able to do it. I wear my birth mother label as a badge of honor; "I'm Danny's birth mother." Sounds good.
