Fiom is conducting a survey into the experiences of people who were pregnant and considered giving up their child for adoption after birth. Those who received counselling during the process, can participate in the survey. It doesn’t matter what the ultimate decision was - taking care of your child yourself, giving the child up for adoption, placing the child in a foster family or any other solution. 

You will find more details on the survey in the participants’ information document.

Why are we doing this survey?  

Giving your child up for adoption is a life-changing event with serious personal consequences. We therefore think it's particularly important that parents facing such a decision get the right support and counselling. This survey investigates the experiences of people involved in counselling, in order to make improvements where necessary. This survey consists of an online questionnaire.

  • Would you like to share your experiences?
