If you or someone you know has been touched by abortion, we extend a warm invitation to explore the healing journey with us.

Understanding Abortion Recovery

Abortion is an experience that can have profound emotional and spiritual effects on women and those close to them. At Hope Rising, we recognize the importance of addressing these effects and providing a space for healing. We understand that the journey to recovery is unique for each individual, and our programs are designed to acknowledge and honor these diverse experiences.

If you find that you’re not recovering emotionally from a past abortion, you may be experiencing Post Abortion Stress Syndrome (PASS).

According to, PASS “is the residual pain of abortion felt through feelings of grief, anger, shame, guilt, or other mental or physical turmoil. Many people experience depression, anxiety, anger, and abandonment following an abortion and these feelings can continue for months or even years afterward.

The H3 site (Help, Hope, and Healing) goes on to say that “The symptoms described in Post Abortion Syndrome are similar to the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Many women and men experience heightened feelings of depression or anxiety at the anniversary months of either the abortion procedure or the proposed birth date of the child who was aborted. Unfortunately, many medical and mental health professionals fail to recognize the painful aftermath of abortion as an actual condition, making it difficult to feel heard or understood.”

At Hope Rising, we are here to be sure you are heard and feel understood.

One-on-one and Group Support

Whether you want to mentally process a past abortion or feel you may be experiencing the symptoms of PASS, we are here for you.

One of the cornerstones of our approach to abortion recovery is the provision of both one-on-one and group support. These formats offer distinct yet complementary benefits. In one-on-one sessions, participants have the opportunity to engage in personalized conversations with our trained counselors, fostering a deep sense of trust and understanding. Group support, on the other hand, provides a community of individuals who share similar experiences, creating a network of empathy, encouragement, and shared strength.

Biblical Curriculum

Hope Rising is committed to integrating biblical principles into our recovery programs. Our carefully curated biblical curriculum serves as a guiding light, offering participants a foundation of spiritual insights to navigate the complexities of healing. We explore relevant passages and themes that resonate with the journey of abortion recovery, providing a source of comfort, inspiration, and faith.

Our goal is to provide a transformative experience and to help those who may feel guilt to see that God’s grace and forgiveness extend even to the darkest corners of our lives.

Confidentiality and Compassion

Creating a safe and secure space is paramount in the healing journey. At Hope Rising, confidentiality and compassion are non-negotiable. Participants can trust that their stories are held in confidence, allowing them to share openly without fear of judgment. Our compassionate counselors are dedicated to walking alongside individuals, providing unwavering support and understanding.

The Role of Hope in Healing:

Hope is a powerful catalyst for healing, and at Hope Rising, we strive to instill hope in the hearts of those affected by abortion. Through our programs, participants discover that healing is not only possible but achievable. Stories of transformation abound, showcasing the resilience and strength that can emerge from the ashes of pain.
