Pregnancy Self-Care: Staying Healthy on the Adoption Journey

Along with the physical aspects of pregnancy, adoption is also an emotional journey, and it’s important to prioritize and nurture your physical and mental well-being during this time.

Nurture Your Well-Being During Adoption Preparation 


Pregnant women come to A Guardian Angel Adoptions because they find themselves unable to provide basic needs for their baby or themself like nutrition. We make sure women have a balanced diet that supports their overall health and well-being during the adoption process. You and your baby both need plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins in your diet. If you are unable to afford a nutritional diet, A Guardian Angel Adoptions is here to help you get the care you need.


Regular exercise can help reduce stress and improve your physical and mental well-being during what can be a worrisome time of your life. Engaging in activities that you enjoy such as walking, swimming, or yoga will help you cope with stress and keep you physically and emotionally strong. Always consult with your healthcare provider before starting any exercise routine.

Prenatal Care

During the adoption process, prenatal care is essential for the health of both you and the baby. A Guardian Angel Adoptions provides prenatal care to all expectant mothers through caring doctors who are familiar with the adoption process or we can help you find a doctor of your choice. Our case managers will make sure you get to regular check-ups with your healthcare provider and follow their recommendations for prenatal vitamins and screenings.

Essential Self-Care Tips

Here are some tried and true tips to keep you feeling your best as you self-care during pregnancy.

Rest and Sleep

Get enough rest and prioritize quality sleep to support your physical and emotional well-being. Establish a bedtime routine and create a comfortable sleep environment. A Guardian Angel provides fully furnished apartments in quiet and comfortable neighborhoods if you are unable to find adequate shelter and comfort where you are.


Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated and maintain optimal health.

Cultivate Your Emotional Well-Being

Taking care of your emotional well-being is just as important as your physical health during the adoption process.

Coping Strategies

Adoption can bring a range of emotions from overwhelm and grief to joy. It is important to develop healthy coping strategies to manage stress and anxiety. Consider techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, journaling, or talking to a therapist. A Guardian Angel Adoptions will provide you with counseling services before, during, and after the placement of your baby. Providing emotional support during your pregnancy is of utmost importance to us.

Build a Support System

Surround yourself with a strong support system of family, friends, and professionals who understand and support your adoption journey. If family support is unavailable, adoption agencies like ours have support groups and understanding staff of adoptive and birth mothers to speak to 24/7.
