Abortion Recovery

Whatever reason a woman chooses to have an abortion, it profoundly changes her life in ways she could never have foreseen. Many women experience significant personality changes after her abortion.

Some experience a deep callousness, anger, and cynicism towards people. Others feel a hardened sense of self. Some feel like a part of them has died. Others feel a tremendous sense of shame and grief. Still others turn to alcohol, drugs and increased promiscuity.

Abortion leaves its scars – emotionally, psychologically and for some physically. 

Only you know when it’s time to revisit the past and see how your abortion changed you. However, strongly consider taking the next step if any of the below applies to you:

  • You are stuck in a cycle of damaging behaviors.
  • You want to feel peace again.
  • You want forgiveness.
  • You want to feel whole again.


How We Help YOU!

Many women find it helpful to speak with a counsellor to help them process their emotions and to experience inner healing. 

We offer both individual and group sessions for women who are struggling with the emotional and psychological impact of abortion. 

Our counsellors are post-abortive. They were also changed by abortion and care deeply about your unique journey.
