How Can I Recover Emotionally After An Abortion?

Are you struggling after an abortion? Maybe you thought abortion would solve your problems, but now your emotions seem even more overwhelming. You are not alone. Many women have been right where you are.

Healing and recovery are possible after an abortion with the right support. Here are some ways to begin to recover emotionally after an abortion. Help is available.

Talk to Someone

We know it’s tough, but try to bring your emotions into the light. You can do this by talking to someone you trust: a friend, family member, or a professional. 

Talk with someone who you see as understanding, compassionate, and non-judgmental. This person can provide a comforting space to share your heart and help alleviate isolation and loneliness.

Offer Yourself Grace

You already feel the weight of the world on your shoulders after such a life-altering decision. Give yourself time and grace to recover and heal. 

Try not to rush the recovery process or to keep your feelings buried. Be open and honest. You will thank yourself later.
