Support After Your Abortion
Life After Abortion
Just as every person is unique, every person’s experience with abortion will be different. Some people will feel emotions immediately, others may not feel those emotions for months or years. Others may feel nothing at all.
After an abortion you may feel relief, shame, regret, denial, numbness, anger, anxiety, sadness, or depression. The feelings you have are unique to you and you are entitled to any and all emotions dealing with your abortion. You don’t have to hide your emotions or be afraid to share them. We offer both private and group support options.
Family, Friends, and Others Affected by Abortion
The above emotions are not only felt by the woman who undergoes the abortion; they can also be felt by family, boyfriends, spouses, and friends. They may also feel helplessness, regret, and blame. These feelings are important and valid.
Many people find it helpful to talk about their abortion experience and feelings in a safe, nonjudgmental environment. There is help, healing and hope available for anyone affected by abortion. It’s never too late or too soon to talk about your decision with someone who understands and is willing to listen. You’re not alone.
Help, Healing and Hope
Whether you prefer a group or individual setting we are here to provide support after your abortion experience. We can help you find help outside of the local area if that is your preference. All our services are and always will be free and your privacy is important to us.
If your preference is to meet one-on-one, you will have a confidential meeting with someone who is trained to support women and men who have gone through an abortion.
If your preference is to participate in a group setting, you will have the chance to meet with people who have similar stories and experiences as you. You can share as much or as little as you like and are comfortable with. You will receive love and support from people who have been in your situation and understand what you’re going through.
