Abortion Recovery Programs
Helping women, men, and families recover after an abortion decision
AFTER ABORTION COUNSELING
Abortion can have devastating effects on a woman of any age. The staff of Hope Resource Center offers a safe, confidential environment to express and work through emotions associated with abortion loss. We offer a listening ear, information and support groups that lead to hope and healing.
Whether a woman’s abortion took place recently, or several years ago, it may have left her experiencing Post-Abortion Stress Syndrome. Some of the symptoms are listed below. Depending on the severity of her symptoms, we can help her begin a journey of healing or refer her to a professional counselor for assistance.
- Psychological “numbing”
- Guilt and Blame
- Substance abuse
- Re-experiencing events related to the abortion
- Pre-occupation with becoming pregnant again
- Anxiety over fertility and childbearing issues
- Interruption or disruption of the bond with
- present or future children
- Self-destructive behaviors
- Anniversary reactions
- Risky sexual practices
hope and healing
Whether you had an abortion many years ago or very recently, we understand that you may need to talk through your emotions and feelings surrounding your abortion. Reactions after an abortion vary from person to person, but everyone involved in the decision will be changed by it.
