Completing abortion – acknowledging, mourning, letting go

Having an abortion is choosing to kill the child within.  For many women an abortion is, understandably, a procedure that they would prefer not to think too deeply about.  The consequence of this is that they let go of the physical body of the foetus but retain the spiritual connection with their unborn child.  This unprocessed loss causes an emotional tug that affects their relationship with others – particularly any children than come later.

My therapeutic approach coaches women (and men) to acknowledge their unborn child, reconnect with it emotionally and, finally, to separate fully from it.  This process can bring unexpectedly large amounts of guilt and grief to the surface for resolution.  When complete it leaves the parent feeling relaxed, grounded, and full of love.
