Monthly Virtual Birthmom Support Groups
Our BirthmomsConnect support calls are held via Zoom and available to any birthmom, anywhere, no matter her affiliation with On Your Feet Foundation or when she placed. The only requirements to participate are as follows:
1. You are a birthmom and your placement is final.
2. You agree to be respectful at all times.
3. What is said in the group remains in the group.
To participate, please download the Zoom app. Registration is required to join the calls. Registering once will give you access to every call for that particular day (every first Tuesday call, for example).
Please note: BirthmomsConnect Calls are open to birthmoms only. If you are an adoption professional, social worker or other individual who is interested in learning more about our virtual support groups, please contact Jennifer Adams. Do not register for the calls. This is a safe space for birthmoms and we ask you to be respectful of that.
2021 MODERATED CALLS:
Open to all birthmoms, our moderated Zoom Support Calls are held on the first Tuesday, second Thursday and third Saturday of each month.
On Your Feet case management and retreat staff moderate each call and each month has a new theme. Discussion materials will be shared during the month to help enhance each week's call. Birthmoms are welcome to join any and all calls no matter their affiliation with On Your Feet or where they live.
