Welcome to the Edmonton Abortion Recovery Centre
The Abortion Recovery Centre is located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It is dedicated to providing comfort, healing and hope to women who have had an abortion in their past. We are compassionate, non-judgmental and safe. For women who have had an abortion and are experiencing difficult emotional reactions these disturbances can seem like they are “going crazy”. We offer a companioning model of grief counselling, walking alongside you becoming familiar with your abortion story.
Post abortion grief is the internal response to thoughts and feelings which result from an abortion. Abortion is a baby loss and as such, your feelings demand for mourning that loss in a healthy way. These painful internal thoughts and emotions require your attention, and will keep trying to get your attention until you give it the care it demands and deserves.
Whether you have had a recent abortion and are experiencing strong “negative” emotions, or whether your abortion was years ago, healing is possible. You are not alone.

Are you feeling like this?
“My abortion is the deepest secret in my life. I guard it and constantly re-bury it so that no one will ever find out.”
“I’m consumed with both grief and anger. I don’t know how to get past this.”
“I begged her not to have the abortion. I wanted my child; I wanted to be given the chance to be a dad and to raise that baby. I’m angry and hurt and I don’t know when the feelings will get better.”
If you are experiencing the same thoughts and emotions, we can help. Call us today to book an appointment in Edmonton.
” There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love.” – Washington Irving
