I had an abortion. I think I need someone to talk to.
Some women feel a sense of relief after an abortion. Other women experience initial relief and then some complicated, uncomfortable emotions come up. For others, unexpected feelings bombard them immediately. No one should be alone in their experience. Some of the negative reactions after an abortion may be immediate and some may occur years afterwards.
Everyone’s experience is different. Post abortion emotions can be related to a woman’s age, length of pregnancy, previous mental health, religious or cultural beliefs, or whether she felt pressured into the abortion. We are here to help you sort through your thoughts, feelings and questions after an abortion. We offer free, confidential help.

“When I first came to Open Door Centre, I felt so alone. I had had an abortion two years before and I hadn’t been able to share that part of my life with anyone- not friends, not family. As a result, I found myself seeking comfort in unhealthy behaviors. Through coming to Open Door Centre and talking with a supportive counsellor, I learnt how to deal with all the complicated emotions I had. I managed to slowly turn to a healthier lifestyle and I am a happier person now than I was before,” – Client
