Weekend retreats for birthmothers by birthmothers
Each Spring and Fall, the On Your Feet Foundation holds weekend retreats for birth mothers. Retreats are held in Michigan City, Indiana, a resort community on the shores of Lake Michigan. The location is easily accessible by car, by plane to Chicago or Indianapolis airports, Amtrak train or even bus. We are happy to assist you with arranging your transportation to and from the retreat.
With the full cost per participant of $300, OYFF underwrites each retreat to make our retreats accessible for anyone who would like to attend. This enables us to maintain a low registration fee per participant: $100 for Traditional Retreats; $150 for Veteran's Retreats; $300/team for Birth & Adoptive Mom Retreats. This fee includes two nights lodging, meals during the retreat and all materials. (Please note this does not cover transportation to or from the retreat).
Our facilitators, Jennifer Pedley and Vicki Twomey have many years of professional experience in the field of adoption as well as all being birthmothers themselves.
Our 2018 Retreat dates are as follows:
