Abortion Recovery Class

Abortion is not just a simple medical procedure. For many women, it is a life-changing event with significant long term emotional and spiritual consequences. There is evidence that abortion is associated with a decrease in both emotional and physical health. Not all people are the same; so how your friend felt or responded after her abortion may not be the same for you. Some may experience negative emotions which can appear within days or after many years or even decades of their abortion.  Separate classes are offered for women as well as men to recover from their abortion experience.

If you have recently had an abortion or sometime in your past, your first emotional response may have been relief. The challenges of an unplanned pregnancy were gone and you could go on with the rest of your life. However, in time you may experience feelings of pain, loss or shame. You may also feel that your abortion is something that must be hidden from others, especially those closest to you. You can’t imagine them knowing and you can’t bear to face their shock and disappointment.


Sadly, one in three women has been in this same situation. Silently carrying the pain of this decision and feeling isolated, many women who have experienced an abortion feel alone, depressed, hopeless and trapped.

We care about you, and we understand. Allow us to help you in your journey towards healing and freedom. We offer confidential, small classes that are safe and nonjudgmental.
