Abortion is an experience that can involve grief and pain. If you are in emotional or spiritual pain after an abortion, there are resources and options available to help you heal.
Birth Choice of San Marcos provides an atmosphere that is safe, welcoming and comfortable providing you with peer counseling and resources to help with your recovery. Many post-abortive experiences have been described to have “symptoms consistent with post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD .” Please set up an appointment with one of our client advocates to learn more.
After an abortion, some women have said they initially felt relief, while others report negative feelings and emotions that don’t go away. Pregnancy loss can be an experience involving grief and pain. Some women actually report problems related to their abortions months or even years later. For these women, abortion is an ordeal that should not be ignored or denied.
Scientific evidence indicates that abortion is more likely to be associated with negative psychological outcomes when compared to miscarriage or carrying a pregnancy to term. 
According to the Guttmacher Institute in their 2016 release: nearly half of pregnancies among American women in 2011 were unintended, and about four in 10 of these were terminated by abortion, but many never talk about it.
You may have experienced an abortion years ago and never told anyone, or experienced one recently. You may have been denied the choice you wanted or not given the support you needed. Regardless of the circumstances, Birth Choice is available to help you on your journey to healing.
I am forever grateful for the love and compassion of Birth Choice in my time of need. I can’t help but look back on how far I have come. I was so broken the day I walked in your office, I remember the hope that I felt each time I went through the post-abortive program and how you helped me pick up the pieces and put them back together. Thank you for being there for me when no one else could understand me.”
