post abortive care


If you’ve already had an abortion, you may be struggling with guilt and regret.  Next Step offers abortion recovery help and support.

Relief is the most common reaction immediately following an abortion, but as time goes on many women (and men) have trouble dealing with the loss they feel. Months and even years after an abortion, significant symptoms can be present.

Some of those feelings are:

  • Guilt

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Shame

  • Self-abuse or self-destructive behaviors

  • Suicidal thoughts

  • Anniversary reactions around the date of the abortion, or the due date

  • Flashbacks of the abortion procedure

 If you or someone you know is experiencing any of the above, the caring and compassionate staff at Next Step want to help you in this process of healing.

Take that first step now and you will find hope for all the next steps for your future!  Call 814-226-7007
