Four Types of Self-Care for Birth Mothers Post-Adoption Placement FL

Exercising. Exercise is great for physical health. When paired with eating healthy, it may also include improved mood and well-being.

Emotional Self-Care:

Journaling. Writing about your adoption journey and how it has made you feel can be great self-therapy. It also provides a way to reflect on your experience and process your emotions. Journaling can be helpful for birth mothers in reducing stress and anxiety by releasing these emotions onto paper.

Therapy/Supportive Counseling. Because placing your baby up for adoption is deeply emotional and personal. We encourage birth mothers to seek therapy or use our counseling services. Therapy or supportive counseling provides an increase in self-esteem and confidence in your decision.

Spiritual Self-Care:

Meditation. Meditation is a great way to learn mindfulness, helping birth mothers ground themselves in the present. This can be a beneficial practice for better coping skills and overall improved mood and well-being.

Social Self-Care. Getting social support and connecting with loved ones. Joining a birth mother support group is a great resource for self-care. You don’t need to feel alone on your journey.
