Birth Mother Support Group Sligo

We, the Danú support group for birth mothers warmly welcome you!

We are a group for mothers who have placed a child for adoption. We have been meeting as a group for some time to talk about our experiences of adoption.

The benefits of being part of this group have been:
* To give us an opportunity to meet others who have been in a similar situation to ourselves
* To give us confidence to talk to our families about our experiences
* To gain an understanding about the grieving process associated with placing our child for adoption
* To give us an understanding of the process of search and reunion
* To give us the opportunity to understand the perspectives of the adoptive parents and the adopted person
* To reduce the sense of isolation

USEFUL INFORMATION

There are a few different sections of information on this webpage and we hope that you will find them useful. We want to know that you are not alone, even though it can feel like that at times.

Take your time to read the:
* The Aims and confidentiality agreement for the group
* An Information Booklet adapted from ARMS Birth mothers group in Australia
* Contact addresses for adoption support services
* Danú Leaflet which gives information about the history of the group, it also provides an email address and phone number so that you contact the group
