Some women feel a sense of relief after an abortion, while other women find it a painful and difficult experience to move past. Women come to the centre hoping to resolve feelings of guilt, anxiety and depression. If you or someone you know may be experiencing post abortion grief, please contact us.
Everyone’s experience is different. While many women experience a sense of relief after an abortion, some women experience strong negative emotions. Some of these negative reactions may be immediate; and some occur many years after the abortion. Post abortion grief can be related to a woman’s age, length of pregnancy, previous mental health, religious or cultural beliefs, or whether she was pressured into an abortion.
Women come to the centre hoping to resolve feelings of guilt, anxiety and depression. Women also inform us of secondary symptoms such as flashbacks of the abortion procedure, addictions, eating disorders, self harm, anniversary syndrome, spiritual disconnection, preoccupation with becoming pregnant again, and interruption of bonding with future children.
If you or someone you know may be experiencing post abortion stress, contact us. Individual and/or group support available.
From a client: “The best part is that you understand and get exactly what I’m feeling. The program sounds exactly what I’ve needed to find. Jenny has given me complete hope again that I haven’t felt in years.”
