Counseling and Emotional Support for Birth Mothers in Florida
For birth mothers, access to therapy, counseling and other emotional support services make up a critical part of her adoption team. With a strong support system behind her, she’ll feel more comfortable and more confident in her decision to place her child for adoption, as well as in her ability to continue making decisions as the adoption process progresses.
It’s common among most adoption agencies to offer counseling and emotional support services for birth mothers going through the adoption process. If you’re going through an unplanned pregnancy and have decided to place your child for adoption, you probably have a thousand different questions, thoughts and feelings causing you a great deal of stress. For anyone, but especially for pregnant women, stress can very quickly become detrimental to the health of both you and your baby. The health and wellness of your body is of utmost importance because it also contributes to the health, wellness and successful growth of your baby.
Emotional Support No Matter Where You’re at in the Adoption Process
As aforementioned, the adoption process can cause an enormous amount of stress, which is unhealthy for both you and your baby. To help you cope with your stress, Adoption Choices of Florida has made counseling and other emotional support resources easily accessible to you, whether you’re just beginning your adoption journey or nearing its finalization!
For those who choose adoption, the journey never really ends. As a birth mother, your child’s adoption is something you’ll think about every day, even after its final stages and especially if you’ve chosen to stay a part of your child’s life.

Asking for Help Does Not Make You Weak
If you’re going through the adoption process and are hesitant to seek out counseling services for help, we completely understand! Realizing you need help, guidance or just someone who’ll listen to your struggles is one thing, but actually asking for that is a totally different thing. Most people view asking for help or seeking out guidance as a sign of weakness, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Even the strongest of people need help sometimes, and you, you’re one of the strongest, most selfless people of all.
