Counseling Facing an unplanned pregnancy can raise some complex issues, regardless
of what you decide. Some women just need to talk through the decision with someone
outside their life. Other women know what they plan to do about the pregnancy, but
need to talk to someone about issues related to the decision, like relationships,
values, or personal development. No matter what’s on your mind, we want to help you
approach the abortion decision with a calm spirit and a healthy heart. After-Abortion
Counseling While many women do not experience difficult feelings following their abortion,
some do, and it is important to acknowledge these feelings as part of the healing
process. We understand that a decision can be right and still be sad. We are here
to listen and offer support. The time surrounding an abortion decision can be intense
emotionally, for many women it provokes an examination of some big issues about her
future, her relationship, or her values. No matter what you decide, facing an unplanned
pregnancy can be difficult.
The predominant feeling most women report after an abortion
is relief, but it's very common to also feel regret, empowerment, sadness, guilt,
happiness, or a combination of mixed feelings. Many women talk about feeling confident
about their decision, and also feeling sad about having an abortion. Honor your
own feelings‚ there is no right way to feel. Allow yourself the same freedom to
have feelings as you would after any major life event or big decision.
abortion is very common, it can be hard to talk about, especially because of all
the political, religious, and cultural stigma involved. If you want to talk to someone
after the abortion, feel free to call our office and talk to a counselor for free.
