Counselling After An Abortion

After an abortion, some women can experience a range of emotions and feelings. Sometimes it can help to talk with someone who is not personally involved. In Cura, counselling and support after an abortion is provided by specially trained and experienced counsellors.

You can come and talk to us on your own, or attend with your partner.

The service is free of charge and is confidential and non-judgemental. Talk to us. We will listen.
