Abortion Recovery is Possible
Many women who choose abortion struggle with emotional, physical, or spiritual distress after that choice. Most of these women suffer in silence. Although abortion might be regularly discussed in the news, it is rarely discussed among friends. It is not just the women who are affected either. The men who would have been fathers are equally yet differently affected.
Symptoms of Abortion Trauma
Some women immediately regret their abortion decision. Others, although quickly feeling relief, find symptoms rising to the surface years or even decades later. Here are some of the post-abortion emotions you may be feeling:
- Anger and bitterness
- Low self-esteem
- Depression, suicidal thoughts
- Struggling in relationships
- Emotional numbness
- Self-harm with drugs, alcohol, or other addictions
- Unforgiveness of self and others
Our Hope & healing Program
Mosaic Health’s Hope & Healing program is for women struggling with finding emotional healing after a past abortion. This post-abortion support program is often led by women who have previously had an abortion or gone through the abortion healing process themselves. They would love to help you begin your healing journey.
One of the texts for those seeking post-abortion help is Her Choice to Heal by Sydna Masse. Her Choice to Heal includes testimonies of strength, healing, and hope. Masse compassionately leads you on a journey from denial, anger, and grief after an abortion to forgiveness, redemption, and letting go.
Mosaic Health’s post-abortion recovery and healing program can be completed one-on-one or in a support group and is strictly confidential.
Urgent: If you are experiencing immediate physical problems after an abortion such as pain, bleeding, fever, or nausea, please call your doctor now or go to an emergency room. These symptoms may indicate signs of complications that require immediate medical attention.
