After an abortion, many people feel some relief, while others have negative emotions.
Reactions may be immediate, or feelings may arise years later; responses vary. They depend on age, stage of pregnancy, religious or cultural beliefs, mental health, and other factors regarding the abortion.
We offer support to anyone facing challenging emotions as a result of an abortion.

You Can Make A Plan
So many thoughts go into making parenting decisions.
There's a lot to consider. If you aren't sure you are prepared to be a full-time parent, ask yourself if you've ever thought about providing parents for your baby?
You Can Provide
You can hand-pick a family for your child. You can create a plan that will have your child's best interests at heart and provide parents who can give all the things necessary for your baby to thrive. This is adoption.
We support and walk alongside a client when she feels that an adoption decision is in the best interest of her child. For parents who choose adoption we offer:
Answers to questions
Emotional & practical support

Ongoing birth-parent support during and after adoption
Urgent placement support
Miscarriage and Stillbirth
We often look outside of ourselves when looking for healing - we want "resolution" and "explanation". But you may find that even after explanations have been given
and resolution has been made, your pregnancy loss simply needs to be experienced.
By experiencing that pain alongside someone committed to walking the path of grief together, you give your soul the permission it needs to process and heal.
Grief and Recovery
We have two one-on-one courses to choose from. The first is not specific to pregnancy loss, but enables clients to experience healing from loss. In this course our certified Grief Recovery Method specialist walks alongside clients through the Grief Recovery Handbook.
Alternatively, our client advocate can support you through a healing journey designed for pregnancy loss. This is a 3-6 week course that gives clients the opportunity to tell their story and process how they are coping with their loss.
Thank you for trusting us to walk this path with you.
