How To Cope With Giving Your Baby Up for Adoption

If you find yourself pregnant but don't have the resources to care for a baby properly, you may want to consider adoption. Giving your baby up may seem like a cruel option, but you are giving him or her the chance to find loving, attentive parents who are ready to expand their family through adoption. If you are considering giving your baby up, you should plan to go through a grieving process, but here are three tips to help you cope.

Research Adoption Agencies

The adoption agency you choose to use is in charge of placing your baby with the right family, so make sure you trust the people who are helping you. Research the best adoption agency for birthmothers before making the decision to put your baby up for adoption.

Choose the Right Family Carefully

In many cases, you can choose the family you want to place your baby with. You can meet with the prospective parents and ask questions to determine if you think they will be the right family for your baby. Knowing how they plan to raise your child and seeing how much they want to become parents may help set your mind at ease.

Find a Support Group

There are other people who understand exactly how you feel when you give your baby up for adoption. Unless people close to you have had the same experience, they can't know how you feel and won't be the best form of support, so it is important to find a support group online to help you with the grieving process.

Resuming life after giving a baby up for adoption is hard. It is important to take the right steps before and after the birth of your baby to prepare yourself for giving him or her up. These three tips can help you navigate the process.

Lola Remedios to the Rescue

These days, getting sick is a major no-no! With the ongoing pandemic, we all need to be extra careful and be healthy all the time. However, with all the stress, pollution, lifestyle and the treat of the virus, we can never really avoid feeling under the weather at some point.

Thankfully, eating healthy food, getting enough sleep and exercise, and drinking our daily vitamins and supplements or vitamins can greatly help us in achieving a body that can withstand life's stressful situations. Being stuck in the house with only limited activity most of the times can also affect our health. Sitting down holding our phones and tablets, can make our muscles stiff. Oh I know that because I am experiencing that quite a lot because I am working from home. Not only it can make me sluggish but gives me frequent body aches.

One truly amazing product that is making waves is LOLA REMEDIOS. It is a food supplement syrup that is ready to drink and only costs P 10 pesos that can be bought in groceries, pharmacies (Mercury Drug, Watsons) and suking tindahan (neighborhood stores).

Though it is not a medicine and have no therapeutic claims, many can attest that simply drinking it regularly can help ease their body heaviness, simple colds, and over all body aches. A friend of mine has been telling me to give it a try when the time comes that I don't feel well or having that "Mabigat na pakiramdam ngunit wala namang sakit" feeling because it works wonders to her. 

With all the natural ingredients like honey, ginger, mint, clove and fennel, surely it will  gently soothe our body and help it recuperate.

Honey -antiviral
Ginger - anti-imflammatory
Mint - Decongestant
Clove - Analgesic
Fennel - Antitussive
I know I have to give it a try when the need arises. For now, I am keeping a good stock of Lola Remedios in our house and will also give some to my relatives. 

So.. if you are feeling under the weather.. Lola Remedios can be the rescue we all need to have. Just like the magic touch of our grandmas (haplos ni lola) that brings comfort. Now, I can have this first instead of taking a medicine right a way. In fact, products with natural ingredients will always be a bonus! Thanks Lola Remedios! 

Just a precaution: It is only recommended for adults but not to be taken by pregnant women or those that are allergic to menthol.
