Post-Abortion Recovery Counseling

If you are in emotional pain after an abortion, we can help you learn about different resources and options available to you in your journey to renewed emotional well-being.

You are not alone in what you have been feeling, and you don’t need to be alone and isolated as you recover. As you reach out for assistance, you will discover a community of compassionate, experienced women and men who will be able to offer skillful and significant help.

We know that what once seemed impossible—peace, forgiveness, restoration to a sense of wholeness—is indeed possible. However deep your trauma and your sense of pain and emotional turmoil, we encourage you to look forward to recovery with renewed hope and confidence.

Please call (831) 475-2200 if you have any questions, comments, or if you would like to schedule an appointment. There is someone available 24 hours a day to speak with you.

Message to the Post Abortive Woman

The Pregnancy Resource Center offers you a place to share your pain, guilt and shame following an abortion(s). Depending on your personality, background, and circumstances, post abortion symptoms may appear almost immediately, for others years later, or seemingly never. It may seem strange that something that was put in place to eliminate “a problem” could not only engender such strong emotions, but also lead to so many other problems.

The Pregnancy Resource Center offers you a place to be healed in a loving, nonjudgmental, confidential environment. There are counselors available, post abortive women included, who have felt many of the things you have felt but have been wonderfully healed. We would love to help you do the same.

If a study holds no appeal to you but you need a listening ear and an open, loving heart, we want to be there for you as well. If the thought of even coming in scares you, e-mail clientdir@santacruzprc.org and we can communicate through email until you feel safe. There is really no reason for you to carry this alone any longer. There is help. Call our 24-Hour Helpline at (831) 475-2200 and set up an appointment.

All our services are free and confidential.
