Uncomfortable Around Babies

“The day after I had my abortion I found out my best friend was pregnant.  I wanted to be happy for her, but I was sad.  How am I going to be around her knowing I should have been going through the stages of pregnancy with her?  It just keeps reminding me of my decision to terminate my baby.

I couldn’t stand the pain any more and found the Helpline number online.  I was scared to call because I was feeling so bad.  I finally called and the lady that answered was so nice and understanding.  She listened to me without comment or judgement.  It was if she knew how I felt.  The lady gave me some local abortion recovery information for me to check out and explained I had started my healing journey.  She encouraged me to keep moving and to take the next step in healing.  I am so glad I called” S.
