A Directory of Post-Adoption
Support Groups & Retreats
At BraveLove, we believe it’s vital that a birth mother not walk alone because the journey of adoption does not end
at placement. Here’s a list of birth parent post-adoption support groups and retreats around the country that we
recommend. We’ve spoken with them, vetted them, and now encourage you to see if they could be a good fit for you
and your clients.
One important thing to note: Every person is different, which is why we’ve created this varied list. We plan to
expand this directory over time with more details and more groups in order to provide lots of different support
options. If you know of a birth parent support group or retreat, contact us at [email protected] We’d love to learn
more about them.
If you’re looking for post-adoption support, we recommend you contact these support
