What to Expect as a Birth Mother Working with Adoption & Beyond

Adoption, Birth Mothers

It’s never an easy decision to place your child with an adoptive family. There will likely be conflicting emotions as you embark on this journey, but having a caring and supportive team by your side throughout the process can make things a lot easier. 

At Adoption & Beyond, we come along beside you to help guide, support, and prepare you not only for the birth of your baby but for your life afterward.

Compassion Every Step of the Way

The first thing that every birth mother should understand when they decide to work with us, is that we support your decision and believe you have the right to choose what’s right for you and your baby. We are here to empower and encourage you during a challenging time emotionally.

Compassion is about giving you the emotional support you need, and it’s what birth mothers that work with us have come to expect. Any pregnancy has its share of ups and downs on the emotional spectrum, but when you have made the courageous decision to enter the adoption process, it takes on a whole new meaning. We want this to be a positive experience for you, and showing compassion is the best way to do that.

Support, Guidance & Education 

As you work through this process, we want you to know that you are not alone. Your adoption coordinator works alongside you, offering you support. There are a lot of important decisions to be made in a relatively short period of time, and we will help you create a personalized plan to ensure each decision you make feels right.  We will also educate you about each facet of the adoption process, so you aren’t surprised by anything after the fact. 

Many prospective birth mothers get great comfort knowing they can speak to others that have gone through the same thing, which is why we will connect you to other birth mothers that have already gone through the adoption process. There will inevitably be questions that come up along the way, and speaking to women that have already been where you are is a wonderful way to share your concerns and let you know that you’re on the right track.

We Respect Your Privacy 

Since adoption is a highly personal decision and one you may want to keep private, only those who need to know what is happening will be informed about your adoption plan. The decision is completely up to you to share your adoption plan, and you can always speak freely and openly with your adoption coordinator without the fear of it going any further. Respect for you and the difficult choices you are making is our primary concern, and we take it very seriously. 

From the moment you get in touch with us, you will be supported with the compassion you deserve through the entire process. You can expect us to be right there with you through the decisions regarding the birth of your baby, the placement, and your life moving forward.
