Pregnancy Counseling

Golden Cradle Adoption Services is a fully licensed adoption agency in New Jersey. We have provided confidential counseling and support to thousands of women during our many years of operation.

Our social workers are specially trained and knowledgeable in all aspects of the adoption process. They will take the time to help you fully understand adoption. They will listen to your needs during this difficult emotional time and guide you step-by-step, presenting the options, and letting you make the choices that are right for you and your baby. There is never any pressure to choose adoption as your plan.

 

Additional Pregnancy Support Services

We offer counseling services both during and after your pregnancy as well as a variety of other services to meet your needs. Your particular circumstance will determine the services that are provided. These services can include:

Housing

We can provide you with assistance in the form of financial aid with your current housing.

Medical Care

Good medical care is important for you and your baby. We will help you get the care that you need, and to find the doctors and hospital that are sensitive to your personal situation.

Transportation

We can pay transportation costs related to your pregnancy.

Legal Issues

We follow New Jersey adoption law. All appropriate legal expenses associated with the adoption process will be paid by Golden Cradle Adoption Services.

It is also important to know that the rights of the father of your child are equal to yours. Whenever possible, Golden Cradle Adoption Services involves the birth father in also developing an adoption plan. However, we do understand that sometimes this is not possible. The law takes this into consideration. Our goal is to help you understand the laws about adoption and your rights throughout the process.

Delivery and Hospital Stay
Your adoption specialist will help you make a delivery plan for your hospital stay. You will have the opportunity to decide who you will contact when you go into labor and who you will want to be at the hospital with you during labor and delivery as well as after the birth. Some mothers choose to include the adoptive parents during this time while others prefer to be alone or include family and friends for support. You have many choices to make and our adoption specialists are here to be of help.
After Adoption Services

Our counseling services do not end once your child is born and has joined his or her adoptive family. We are here to help you, even if you just need someone to listen. We understand that biological parents and families grieve their losses and never stop loving the child who was adopted. We are here to help you through the grieving process.

We encourage you to stay in touch by providing us with updated information on your life, changes in address, phone number, medical updates, marriages, additional children, completion of education programs, and your occupational successes.
