Abortion is more than just a medical procedure. Some women feel relief, and others feel sadness or regret. Some women even feel numb. There is no right way to feel after your abortion. Anything you are feeling or have felt is valid. The reality is, many women and those close to them struggle to process their feelings after an abortion- sometimes for years after. Many of them feel as if there is nowhere they can turn for post-abortion support.
At Turlock Pregnancy and Health Center, we offer post-abortion support to women at no cost.
Emotional and Psychological Impact
Following abortion, many women experience initial relief. The perceived crisis is over and life returns to normal. However, for many women, the crisis is not over. Months and even years later, significant problems may develop.
Women who have experienced abortion may develop the following symptoms:
- Suicidal Thoughts
- Difficulty Bonding with Partner or Children
- Eating Disorders
If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms, our pregnancy center offers confidential, compassionate support designed to help you work through these feelings. You are not alone.
If you wish to begin the healing process from a past abortion or abortions, abortion recovery facilitators are available, free of charge. Deciding to seek help may be one of the toughest decisions you have to make, but it may be one of the best.
