Support After an Abortion
You may feel a range of emotions after an abortion – this is entirely normal. People often experience feelings such as sadness, happiness, empowerment, anxiety, peace, guilt, relief, loss or grief. There is no right or wrong way to feel following your abortion. Take all the time you need after your procedure. Try not to push your feelings aside, let yourself feel whatever you feel. There is no evidence to suggest that abortion has any significant impact on persistent or serious mental health issues.
Following your abortion it’s important to take care of yourself both physically and emotionally. Make sure to get enough sleep, eat complete meals and do things you enjoy like spending time with friends or taking a walk.
Here is a list of ways to take care of yourself after your abortion.

Post Abortion Workshop Series
A free 6-session online workshop series. The intention of this group is to give participants an opportunity to share and explore their diverse experiences of abortion, and it is open to anyone who has previously had an abortion. Since there can be a lot of silence and stigma around abortion, we wanted to create an anonymous and non-judgemental space where participants can discuss their experiences freely.
