Pregnancy Options Counseling
With every pregnancy there are three options, parenthood, adoption, and abortion. Facing an unplanned pregnancy in particular can raise an array of emotions and complex issues. No matter what decision you make we want to help you approach the option of abortion with a calm spirit and peace of mind.
If you are no sure about which option to choose please feel free to set up an appointment to speak with our experienced and caring staff to further discuss which option is best for you at this time in your life.
Each woman’s experience following their abortion is different. 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 not only before but after your decision. The time surrounding an abortion decision can be intense and emotionally draining. For many women it provokes a time of reflection on their future, current relationships, and values.
However the predominant feeling most women report after having 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.
Even though 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 your abortion, feel free to call our center for after abortion support.
We care & we will listen.
