Post-pregnancy (after your pregnancy), you’re still not alone. A New Beginning provides post-pregnancy support through counseling, community resource referrals and a peer support group called “Connections, It’s a girl thing.” Your mental, emotional and physical health is vital to your journey and success. This is an important time to address a big part of your emotional journey as well. We’ll 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. It’s always a safe and comfortable environment and dedicated to helping birth mothers bond and build relationships with other like-experienced women. We request that you sign up as a member, FREE, on our closed facebook group but participate in only the functions and activities that make sense to you. 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. Each of the events are fun providing an opportunity to meet others with an adoption experience, create, empower, learn, grow, laugh, experience and inspire. To become part of this group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upcoming events include a “Yes, And” improv workshop, movie night, Birth Mother’s Tea Party, Book Club with author Karen Nielsen, Support the arts, Park adventure and Cosmic Smash Boards. Contact Megan for details email@example.com.

Sharing your Adoption Story on a panel or in a blog
