When Aspen Baker's organization Exhale launched in 2000, it was the first of its kind—an organization that offers women support after an abortion without judgment or politics. Since then, we have trained more than 150 counselors, and our talkline has received more than 50,000 calls. We have listened to, and learned, from thousands of women and their loved ones.

This guide collects much of what we have learned specifically about supporting emotional wellbeing after an abortion. It is intended for service providers who would like to incorporate after-abortion support into their care, and individuals who want to be better equipped to have conversations about personal abortion experiences with the people in their lives. 

We hope that you find the Pro-Voice Counseling Guide useful and encourage you to pass it along to friends, family, and colleagues.
