We are here to help.
The recent COVID-19 pandemic has imposed social restrictions that can heighten a sense of alienation and isolation that may have already been present due to a past abortion, miscarriage, or stillbith. The increased stressors related to anxiety, uncertainty, and social isolation can make connecting at this time even more important to your healing and well-being. If this feels true for you, please consider attending our Hope Support Groups to take advantage of this critical time and special opportunity to give and receive support.
Everyone grieves differently and there is no one “right” answer for how to cope when impacted by pregnancy loss. But you don’t need to be alone in the process. No matter how long you’ve been grieving, we offer a safe and compassionate place to explore the complex emotions of loss; provide tools; and faith based strategies as we build a community of hope and connection. Hope Support Groups are open to all who have been impacted directly or indirectly with abortion, miscarriage, and pregnancy loss.
After an abortion, a woman may have both positive and negative feelings, even at the same time. A woman may feel both relief and regret over the fact that the abortion is over and that she is no longer pregnant. Another woman may feel sad that she was in a position where all of her choices were hard ones. She may feel sad about ending the pregnancy. And the sadness may be compounded by a sense of emptiness or guilt. She may be wondering whether or not her decision to have an abortion was the right one. Some women who describe these feelings find they go away with time while others find them more difficult to overcome.
If you are struggling with the emotional side effects of pregnancy loss, RealOptions Obria Medical Clinics offers a safe space to join a support group. You will begin to heal and exchange the weight of your grief for the lightness of grace. You aren’t alone. Healing is possible.
