Has abortion changed you? Everyone is different, and their experience with abortion is unique. Some people are surprised by their emotions immediately afterward, while others may not experience emotions for months or years later. It is even possible never to experience emotions at all.
After an abortion, you might feel relief, regret, anxiety, or even depression. Your feelings are unique to you, and you are entitled to those emotions. We want to help you work through those emotions.
Life After Abortion
Abortion can be like a pond when a rock is thrown in. Some ripples spread out to the edge. If your family members and friends are aware of your abortion choice, they may feel regret, helplessness, or sadness. Their feelings are valid too.
No matter how you are processing your abortion, many find it helpful to talk about their experience and feelings in a safe, judgement-free place. It’s never too late or too soon to begin discussing your decision with someone who understands, is willing to listen, and can provide help.
Help, Healing, and Hope
We offer a safe place to process your experiences where the abortion discussion is set apart from politics, labels, and debate.
We use a book titled “Changed: Making Sense of Your Own Abortion or a Loved One’s Abortion Experience” by Michaelene Fredenburg.
If you choose to discuss your abortion one-on-one, you can meet confidentially with someone trained to support women and men. By using “Changed,” you can explore your emotions and recognize unhealthy behaviors. We are eager to offer help and compassion to anyone affected by abortion.
Through “Changed,” you can tell your story and build the support you need.
For increased confidentiality, we can help you find support outside of your local area too.
We Do Understand The Why
We are here because we understand the factors that contributed to your abortion choice. Our compassionate staff truly cares about your health, happiness, and well-being.
