There has been a lot of shame, stigma and restrictions put on the decision to end a pregnancy and we will have the opportunity prior to the actual release to start to unpack and undo any weight that may be limiting your own personal beliefs and decisions. We will explore your options together so you are able to decide what makes the most sense for you. We will begin to envision together what a powerful experience this can be. Starting to gather comfort supplies and coping skills alike we will set your release intentions in a meaningful and supportive light.
