Post Abortion Help
Surrendering the Secret is a course designed to bring healing to women who have had an abortion in their past. Abortion is not a secret anymore; it is freely discussed in our society. Despite the openness, many women have pain and experiences that they don’t feel comfortable telling anyone. Our mission is to provide a supportive and confidential environment that facilitates healing and restoration, bringing a sense of hope and purpose for the future.
Post Abortion Syndrome
Post Abortion Syndrome (PAS) has been proposed as a diagnosis for women who experience a specific related set of emotional problems. PAS is proposed as a subset of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) when PTSD is the result of an abortion. Many women who have emotional problems after an abortion fit within the diagnosis of PTSD.
If you experience any of the following, you may struggle with Post Abortion Syndrome:
- Suicidal thoughts or attempted suicide
- Difficulty bonding with partner
- Difficulty bonding with future children
- Substance abuse
You may have experienced any number of these symptoms for awhile and never connected it to a past abortion. If this is you, know that there is hope as you seek to understand how the abortion impacted you and find healing after that experience.
If you suspect you suffer from PAS or are simply struggling with your feelings about the abortion, don’t try to handle it alone. While talking to a friend or relative may be helpful, women experiencing PAS may need mentoring and/or a support group in order to work through their feelings about the abortion and the trauma surrounding it. These services are available to anyone struggling with a past abortion, even if there are no symptoms of PAS.
