I used to be an Abortion Nurse

Yes, an abortion nurse – they exist in the nursing field but often not talked about shrouded in guilt and shame amongst the workers and people who entered the spaces.

But I’m all about speaking truth, especially when it comes to women’s and people’s reproductive journey and rights which include the right to end the pregnancy

One striking thing in common with all the people who attended and then left the clinic was lack of support. Not that we didn’t offer counselling and phone lines help- but having that someone who was going to be there in the darkest hours, while they were passing the pregnancy. That knew and understood what they were going through and could be fully present to hold space in the moments needed

Having that someone to nourish their bodies as even though they didn’t have a live baby, they still birthed and were now postpartum and therefore still need that tender loving touch from someone who is like a trusted friend and confidant

Packages I offer for this support are very flexible and adjusted to your individual needs rather than a set collection of activities.

I can create a full postnatal support package that matches the same needs for you as a woman or person recovering from your body opening, changing and recovering as well as the related emotions that may pop up through your journey.

I believe that people deserve the same level of intense support and presence in this time after the surgery or passing the pregnancy as a woman or person who has just given birth to a live baby

So if this is something you need or someone you know needs, then get in touch
