Post-pregnancy (after your pregnancy), you’re still not alone. A New Beginning provides post-pregnancy support through birth mother mentors, professional counseling, community resource referrals and a peer support group online called “Connections, It’s a girl thing,” a private Facebook group and a private Instagram page. We also host several in-person events and mentor training throughout the year. Your mental, emotional and physical health is vital to your journey and success. We invite you to join one of our very powerful support groups.
Connections is a support group for birth mothers and offers monthly activities all year long. The birth mother support meetings are always a safe and comfortable environment completely dedicated to helping birth mothers bond and build relationships with other like-experienced women. The events are posted on our private birth mother social media accounts, look below for links to join.
Most events provide you an opportunity to bring a friend who may also be experiencing an unplanned pregnancy or is at some point in her adoption or post-adoption journey. To learn more about Connections, it’s a girl thing email email@example.com
Be Social – private communities for birth mothers
The Birth Mother Instagram page is a private page. Visit @anb_connections and request to follow. We will grant you permission to be part of the group, you and other members can access the page and post and have conversations with other birth mothers.
If you are interested in being part of the Instagram group and need help or have questions please contact Kaitlyn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sharing your Adoption Story
A New Beginning hosts a podcast called Recognizing Courage, and would be happy to have you on to share your adoption journey. Many birth mothers also find it helpful to share their own personal adoption journeys with other birth mothers or by becoming a mentor. You can listen to Recognizing Courage here.
If you would be interested in sharing your incredible story, please let Cara know.
