Find Healing from a Past Abortion
Abortion impacts every person and every situation differently. No one has the exact same experience, so no one will have the exact same feelings or recovery process. If you have unresolved feelings after an abortion, we can help.
If you or someone you love has had an abortion, you may be experiencing:
Whole Heart, a service of First Care Clinic, provides post-abortion consultations to help heal the emotional wounds of abortion. Whole Heart offers confidential and non-judgmental help for women, men and family members who are experiencing emotional turmoil following an abortion, all free of charge.
Post-abortion stress is the inability to process the stress and emotions accompanying one’s abortion decision and experience. This may be an immediate or delayed reaction that can surface anytime in a person’s life. When it does resurface, it can be confusing, painful and overwhelming.
According to Psychology Today, women who felt pressured into having an abortion, or were uncertain or uninformed about their alternatives, may be at risk for developing post-abortion stress.
Who can be affected by post-abortion stress?
Boyfriends, husbands, mothers, fathers, grandmothers or grandfathers, sisters, friends, and anyone involved in the abortion decision can be affected by post-abortion stress. Abortion is a life-changing event that has serious consequences for anyone who was connected to the situation. The impact of abortion is felt far beyond the individual women who made the choice.
