Post abortion support

Following an abortion, women vary in their responses and their feelings may also change over time.

There is often a sense of relief, but for some women this may be followed by difficult feelings including sadness, loss and regret.

If you are experiencing emotional issues following a termination, help is available.

The Haven offers:

  • Free, confidential support from a trained advisor
  • Space to talk through your feelings and experiences, whether recent or long ago
  • A supportive and sensitive step-by-step recovery programme, helping you to work through the past and move forward


Our free and confidential sessions are available for women or men, with or without partners.

If you would like to make an appointment to talk privately and confidentially with one of our volunteer Advisors, you can contact us by email or by phone on 01444 233 333.
