Earlier this week I had a medical abortion

Earlier this week I had a medical abortion (the pill), my fiance wanted to keep it but since we just had a baby and I'm in the middle of my career I decided to abort. Today is Friday and I'm tortured by depression and guilt. I stick by my logical reasons, but my maternal instinct is screaming at me that I've done the wrong thing.

There can be a battle between your head and your heart. Your head tells you that it is the right decision, but you can feel emotional pain if it was a difficult decision for you. Although you are very busy with a baby already, that in itself may be making it harder as you have just carried your baby and given birth. If you would like some more support to help you to process some of these difficult feelings, please contact CareConfidential. for post abortion support. or call the national helpline 0300 4000 999.
