Post-Abortion Counseling

Have you or a loved one been impacted by the effects of abortion? Many women experience hardship when coming to terms with an abortion. There are many negative emotions and even physical symptoms that women experience. Often, women don’t know how to go about processing through them. Help is available, and healing is possible.

Signs Of Post-Abortion Trauma

Every woman’s abortion experience is different. Some women feel relief for a moment, some feel a deep sense of loss, while others may feel nothing at all. Abortion is like a rock thrown into a pond. At first, it makes a big splash, landing where you wanted it to go. Afterward, ripples begin to spread out from the splash. Circles get wider and wider the farther they go out. Those are like the after-effects of abortion.

Here are some of the things you may struggle with:

  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Substance Abuse
  • Relationship Problems
  • Suicidal Thoughts
  • Eating Disorders
  • Nightmares
  • Guilt
  • Regret

These feelings may not show up in the weeks and months after an abortion; they might show up years later. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, you may find comfort in a private abortion recovery support group.

When Do These Emotions Begin?

As we said, you may not experience these feelings for years after your abortion. Several situations that might trigger these feelings are:

  • The anniversary date of the abortion
  • Your expected due date
  • Holidays spent with family
  • The announcement of another’s pregnancy
  • Your own subsequent pregnancies

You should never feel alone in your healing journey.  Connect with one of our counselors today.

Post-Abortion Healing

Abortion is a complicated subject to talk about. However, women find comfort in sharing their abortion experiences with others who have been through the same thing. Your reasons for having an abortion differ from others, but you may share the same struggles.

Your feelings matter and should be acknowledged. There is support and healing. Our counselors want to hear your story, and we promise to keep everything you share completely confidential. All of our counseling is free of charge too.

We will connect you with a group in your community that can offer healing, love, and support during your journey.

  • I was a twenty-year old working a full-time and part-time job, trying to make ends meet. I didn’t know what I was doing with my life, to be honest what twenty-year old does? When I found out I was pregnant I had so many questions running through my mind: How could I support another human being? How can I be a parent when I am still raising myself? I don’t make enough money! I decided to talk to someone about all my fears.
  • I liked how understanding everyone was. I felt cared for and supported by the entire staff. I felt informed of all my options, and I liked hearing what others had chosen, because I’d never done this before and it helped me understand.
  • I considered abortion when I first found out I was pregnant. My parents were pro-life and I didn’t really want to have an abortion but I was scared, alone, and was in a bad place. I went to a pregnancy center and then started thinking other options.
  • The people working here are AMAZING. No words can describe how beautiful the work they do is.
  • When I found myself facing an unplanned pregnancy, it was a scary situation...I was nervous. Katy got into contact with me. She was absolutely amazing. She made me feel so comfortable. I never once felt judged, or disrespected. If I had a question or concern…Katy had an answer or resolution. Very promptly I might add…I’m just extremely grateful I had Katy by my side.
  • I liked that my pregnancy counselor was there for me when I felt that I couldn’t talk to many people about what was going on.
  • I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you and everyone there did for me! I am blessed God opened my eyes and showed me true love…
You are braver than you know & stronger than you think.
