About 4500 women across Ireland have a termination procedure every year. Choosing to have an abortion is a difficult decision to make. Some people may experience a range of deep or intense feelings after the abortion. This can happen weeks, months and for some even years afterwards. Women who make this decision may experience a variety of different emotions including relief, sadness and a sense of loss after an abortion.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
Many women who have had an abortion claim to feel alone afterwards and need someone to talk to. Sometimes support is needed in dealing with these feelings. Post-abortion counselling is a service offered at Sandyford Wellness Centre for those that decide that they would like to talk to someone, whether they have had an abortion recently or many years ago.
