013-800Abortion Recovery

A woman who hurts after an abortion is not always understood. The intensity of her emotional reaction is a shock to her as well as to those from whom she seeks counsel.

Every woman’s experience following an abortion is unique. Some women feel relief, and others feel immediate regret. Many experience feelings of deep loss, while others no have apparent signs of physical or psychological side effects. It’s not only common, but normal to feel a lot of emotions at the same time. Anger, sadness, loneliness, or a lack of interest (or preoccupation) in work, school, or even sex, have been experienced after an abortion.

Many women (and men) avoid talking through their feelings because they feel ashamed or fear judgement. However, processing your feelings can be of great comfort.

Whether your abortion was yesterday or years ago, help is available. You don’t have to sort out things alone. We offer post-abortion support one-on-one or in a group setting. Trained facilitators conduct meetings with compassion and confidentiality.

Abortion can affect your life in ways you never expected. If you’re looking for a safe place to explore your emotions, please call us.
