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. 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.
If you haven’t already, Connect to one of our Birth Mother Mentors
“I never want anyone to feel alone like I did.”
A New Beginning’s Birth Mother Mentors are birth mothers who have been through the adoption journey, they understand how difficult an unplanned pregnancy can be, the weight of all the decisions and planning for the birth of your child. None of them will say “making an adoption plan is easy…” It’s not. Each of the mentors have received mentor training and work directly with you and your adoption team. They are your strongest advocate. If you haven’t been connected to a Birth Mother Mentor, let us help you.
Connections is a support group for birth mothers and offers monthly activities all year long. The Connections events are currently being help online as a result of COVID-19 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
Join our Social – private communities for birth mothers

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. Others also share their stories by presenting or participating in a discussion panel with adoptive families considering adoption. Not everyone feels comfortable sharing their story.
If you would be interested in sharing your incredible story, please let us know.
