after abortion support
Having an abortion is an emotional experience. Many women indicate having feelings of guilt, grief, depression and even shame .If the medical procedure was difficult, a woman may develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and may even have flashbacks of the experience. In some circles, abortion carries a social stigma leaving women feeling alone and depressed. While grief and guilt may not result in long-term harm; PTSD, depression and anxiety can worsen and have a lasting impact if not dealt with which will affect your ability to move on and maintain healthy relationships. We are here to help you through the healing process.
