Everyone feels differently about and through their journey. For some, the experience of having an abortion can be very emotional.
How you process your emotions after an abortion is unique to you. Your feelings and emotions are your own. No one can tell you how you should or shouldn’t feel.
Everyone deals with having an abortion in their own way. There is no right or wrong way of processing how you feel. Whether you want to keep your mind busy or take time for yourself and pause, you need to do what is right for you. Take a walk, work out, meet with friends, journal - take the time you need.
Talking about your journey with someone you trust in a safe space may help. This may be a partner, friend, family member, or someone else close to you. If you would like additional support, we can put you in touch with a counsellor who specialises in abortion care.
One of our nurses will call you the day after you miscarry to check in to see how you are and ask about your bleeding and cramps. They will also gather some extra information so that they can ensure you miscarried.
If you feel you would like to speak to a counsellor for additional support, our nurse can help arrange this during your chat.
