AFTER PREGNANCY

Many of our lives have been touched by reproductive loss; and we don't always feel we have the freedom to talk about it with others. If you or someone you know needs to talk about their personal experience, the Women's Enrichment Center is here with free and confidential counseling and support.

ABORTION RECOVERY

Searching for a safe place to talk about your abortion experience? Whether you had an abortion many years ago or very recently, we understand that you may need a safe place to talk through your emotions and feelings surrounding your abortion. You may be experiencing feelings of regret or loss, even if this was a decision you made with confidence. You are not alone.  

 

We are here to help you with free, confidential counseling and support. In many cases, the pain of an abortion may initially be buried, only to surface later in difficulties with relationships or depression. WEC is here to reach out to men, women, siblings, grandparents, or anyone who may need to talk about an abortion experience. 

 

Break the silence today. Give us a confidential call at 706.278.1050 or make an appointment to come talk with someone.

POST -ABORTION STRESS SYNDROME (PASS)

Post-abortion syndrome occurs after an abortion and can be experienced by both women and men. Symptoms are similar to those in post-traumatic stress disorder and may involve psychological, emotional, physical, and spiritual distress. Basically, it is the personal struggle to work through thoughts and feelings about an abortion. The ultimate goal is to come to peace with those involved in the decision to end the life of a child. Reactions to an abortion will vary from person to person, but everyone involved in the decision will be changed by it. 

Symptoms of post-abortion syndrome will vary, and those affected by abortion will not possess all signs of the disorder. In fact, some syndromes may not surface until five-to-twenty years following the abortion. If you find that you are experiencing any of the symptoms of PASS (post-abortion stress syndrome), please call WEC at 706.278.1050 and speak with a post-abortion counselor today. 

Common symptoms of post-abortion stress syndrome: 

  • Guilt

  • Numbness

  • Emotionally cold and unresponsive

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Suicidal impulses

  • Alcohol and/or drug use

  • Nightmares

  • Eating disorders

  • Anxiety over fertility and childbearing issues

  • Loss of interest in sex or increased sexual activity or high-risk behavior

  • Avoidance of baby reminders (e.g., baby showers, baby stores, etc.)

  • Over-protection of living children 

  • Pre-occupation with becoming pregnant again

  • Resentment towards those who were involved in the abortion decision. ​
