Note: The Exhale Pro-Voice After-Abortion Stories Hub includes people’s stories of their experiences and emotions, exactly as they have written them in. We do not edit these stories at all, and the content that follows this message is exactly as we received it. We know that people’s experiences are complex, and these stories reflect the many emotions they may be feeling after their abortions. From relief to grief, and everything in between, and all at the same time, we’re here for you.

Your due date is right around the corner and its surprisingly light. There is now circulation around my grief. Where as before it was only a heavy and static constraint. Now, there is movement and breath. This sudden “round” of grief has been a hard one. I’m reminded of you just about everywhere I look. Particularly in flowers and the Earth. I want to lay down in a bed of wildflowers and drink you in and breathe you out. For now, I’ll admire the tiny buds that Spring is offering and think of you. I bought a flowering bulbs from the dim grocery store. When they’re finished, I plant them in honor of you.

You deserve nonjudgmental
after-abortion support.
