Adoption:

Adoption is such a beautiful option to consider for your family.  We will discuss many components of this decision during your pregnancy confirmation appointment.  Once you have made that decision, however, we will connect you with resources and agencies that can help you along that journey.  Each of those agencies have wonderful programs that guide you through the process, as well as the emotional journey you experience.

HEART is a safe, confidential, eight-session abortion recovery and support group sponsored by ComfortCare Women’s Health.

If you have an abortion in your past, consider asking yourself these questions:

  1. Have the effects of abortion changed you as a person? 
  2.  Do you experience explosive emotions?
  3.  Have your relationships with men been affected?
Full quiz

1. Have the effects of abortion changed you as a person? What were you like before your abortion? How are you different now?

2. If your sister or best friend were thinking about having an abortion, what would you tell her about an abortion and the after effects?
