Abortion and miscarriage
We provide support in connection with self-determined abortion and miscarriage There are many different terms and concepts, such as “missed miscarriage”, “late miscarriage” and “loss of pregnancy”. A self-determined abortion may not necessarily feel self-determined. It may not always feel as if you have a choice.
Whatever the reason for the termination of a pregnancy, Amathea provides services to everyone.
The time before and after abortion or miscarriage will likely be experienced differently from person to person. At Amathea, our experience is that many of our clients find it helpful and important to have someone to talk to afterwards, and to get answers to questions, help to sort out thoughts and feelings, and to process the experience. This can help them understand their own reactions or feelings afterwards, which is important going forward.
Our website contains information on all these topics and more. You are welcome to contact us here at Amathea, and we will help you.
If you would like to talk to a neutral professional, you can contact Amathea, a public health nurse, GP or midwife. Others may prefer talking with a partner, friends or family.
Our focus, in dialogue with you, is on giving you the time and opportunity to talk about whatever you feel is important to you. This is meant to be a safe place, where you can speak openly without worrying about what might be right or wrong.
