If you had an abortion and are experiencing difficult emotions, you’re not alone. According to a report by the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Task Force on Mental Health and Abortion (TFMHA), many women have reported the following mental health effects after an abortion:

  • Grief
  • Sadness
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Regret
  • Shame

Whether you had an abortion, days, weeks, or even years ago, what you’re feeling is normal and understandable. But there is hope. You can find healing from the trauma of abortion.

How To Find Healing

One of the best ways to get on a path toward healing is by talking to other people who understand what you’re going through. At Alternatives Laurel Highlands, we are here to listen and offer encouragement to help you get through these emotions.  We can also offer connections to post-abortion trauma support groups and counseling that will give you the space to share your feelings and experiences while hearing from others who are walking the same path.

Contact us today to get connected with our caring team. You don’t have to face this journey alone. We’re here for you, and healing is possible.
