Struggling with a Past Abortion? We Can Help.

Millions of women and men in the U.S. have had abortions. Many are unhealed and do not know that they have an opportunity to work through their experience and loss.

The psychological ramifications of having an abortion may include depression, grief, anxiety, lowered self-esteem, regret, suicidal thoughts and behavior, sexual dysfunction, avoidance of emotional attachments, flashbacks, or substance abuse.

Our counselors do not attempt to fit each person into a category. Grief from a loss is a human condition and should be treated with respect and compassion. Because each individual experiences loss at different paces and times, our counselors work with clients to develop an individualized plan to work through their presenting needs. Our professional counselors provide a treatment approach that meets each person where he or she is.

Our confidential counseling is free of charge. To schedule an appointment, call 504.831.3117 in New Orleans or 225.663.6470 in Baton Rouge. Walk-ins are also welcome during our business hours.

We’re still here for you! Due to precautions for COVID-19, our clinics are temporarily closed for in-person appointments for unplanned pregnancy services, but we are still here for you with free, professional counseling by phone and video consultation during normal business hours. For assistance in New Orleans, please call 504.831.3117. For assistance in Baton Rouge, please call 225.362.9879.

For other women’s health services, please call 504.496.0214 to schedule a telehealth appointment with our Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. Calls are answered Mon.-Fri., 8:30am-4:30pm.
