Expectant/Birthparent Support and Counseling
We offer support and counseling services for expectant parent(s) making an adoption plan
as well as for birthparent(s) who have placed their baby/child for adoption.
Services are a combination of weekly/bi-weekly counseling sessions via in-person and/or phone
with the ability to have phone/text contact with adoption support professional (counselor) as needed for support.
Post-placement support and counseling is provided up to 3 months after placement.
Topics include but are not limited to: grief/loss, openness, communication/relationship building with adopting family, preparing for hospital/birth, exploring role/identity as a birthparent, and discussing adoption with children currently parenting. The adoption support professional will provide resources for local/online birthparent support as well as any other appropriate community referrals. Birthparent(s) are eligible for support check-ins at the 6-month and 1-year interval after placement and additional resources/referrals may be provided as needed.
