How Can I Recover Emotionally After An Abortion?

You may experience deep senses of anxiety, grief, or even depression after an abortion. It may just be hitting you months later or maybe even years later. You are not in this alone; many women have been right where you are.

Your emotions don’t have to rule your life but can be worked through. You don’t have to stay stuck in the endless cycle of turmoil and trauma. With the proper support and tools, healing is possible. 

How Do I Begin My Recovery?

If you find yourself struggling to recover, it is crucial to reach out to a trusted medical professional for support. The healing journey is unique for everyone, and it’s longer or shorter depending on the woman. Try to take the pressure off and walk day by day, step by step.

Along with talking to a professional through your abortion recovery journey, here are some things you can do on your own to help: 

  • Eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water
  • Get enough rest and create a sleeping schedule
  • Talk to others about your feelings
  • Engage in physical activity
  • Consider self-care activities such as a massage, relaxing, or getting dinner
