Healing The Emotional Wounds

An abortion, no matter how long ago, can cause lasting emotional turmoil. Many share feelings of sadness or anger, while others may experience an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness. CareNet Milwaukee wants to help heal the emotional pain by becoming a guide to the next step of your recovery.
If you are ready to get started call or text (414) 962-2212 to schedule your first session.

With the help of our trained staff member, Amy, we are able to provide a safe and confidential environment for women, like you, to share their experiences with past abortion decisions and how that has affected their lives. Through this counseling, we hope to heal your emotional wounds and help you regain the feeling of hope once again.

Signs Of Post-Abortion Stress

Post-Abortion trauma can be a result of unresolved thoughts, emotions, or even physical abnormalities. But the one thing to remember is that everyone has their own unique way of showing their emotional pain and whether it’s debilitating or a slight nuisance to your everyday life we can support you and help you move forward with your life. Even if your trauma appears years or decades after your abortion, we can provide the support you need.

Below is a list of common experiences that women like you have experienced and struggle with post-abortion.

  • Feelings of sadness and anger
  • Self-destructive behaviors including substance abuse, abusive relationships, or promiscuity
  • Feelings of anxiety, difficulty sleeping, nightmares
  • Uncontrollable crying
  • Guilt/Shame
  • Grief/Loss
  • Depression
  • Hopelessness
