If you are needing support through your healing journey, we would like to offer you help with an eight week recovery programme.
"Forbidden grief" is used to describe the sadness and pain felt by many women following their abortion decision. This pain is seldom confined to the loss of a child: many also lose relationships, self-worth, and hope for the future. These losses must be grieved and, as with all grieving journeys, this involves processing emotional responses such as relief, denial, guilt, shame, depression, anger, and forgiveness.
About the course:
The course runs once a week over eight weeks in a small, private and confidential group facilitated by women who have experienced abortion.
Together with others who are experiencing post abortion stress you’ll go through the ‘Living in Colour’ book.
The course allows you to grieve and understand that after an abortion you may need to allow yourself to ‘know’ your child in order to say ‘goodbye for now’.
After processing your loss you might discover that your healing journey teaches you many life lessons. Lessons that help increase your strength of character, wisdom, vision, and hope.
The last part of the program celebrates the process of emerging from the ‘grey zone’ of unresolved loss into a life of freedom, joy and colour.
