Free Confidential Care For a Past Abortion

After abortion mentoring is designed to assist you if you’ve experienced abortion and need to work through negative emotions surrounding that experience. New Hope Center’s trained and compassionate staff members can talk with you about your experience in a confidential and safe setting.

What are the emotional side effects of abortion?

Some women report immediately feeling relief following an abortion but begin to experience other emotions as time goes on. Abortion can affect each woman differently, and if you’re beginning to experience any of the following, we welcome you to join our after-abortion care program.

Potential emotional side effects of abortion include:

  • Regret
  • Guilt
  • Anger
  • Shame
  • Feeling of isolation
  • Insomnia or nightmares
  • Dip in self-confidence
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts or feelings
  • Eating disorder

Who might experience emotional side effects?

Anyone can experience emotional side effects following an abortion, but you may be at greater risk if you’ve struggled with emotional or psychological illnesses in the past if you were pressured into an abortion, if you had an abortion without telling anyone, or if you had ethical, religious, or moral beliefs that conflicted with abortion.

Speaking Up: The First Step to Healing

The best thing you can do if you’re experiencing any of the above emotions is to say something. It’s easy to shrink into isolation, but the only way to work through these feelings to find healing is to step forward. We know the sensitivity of this situation, and at New Hope Center, you will be met with compassion and love.

New Hope Center offers free compassionate after abortion care, so you can find the freedom and healing that is available to you. Contact us today to learn more or sign up for our after abortion care program.
