    1. Hi Courtney,

      There are many different ways to process your emotions and there are many types of post-abortion rituals. It is important to find what’s right for you. Just like Meg, many people have shared their own rituals on the podcast. Maybe listening to some of their stories will give you some ideas about what you can do for yourself. Here is a link to some of the stories (there are more that did not pop up): Also, check out Spirit Babies. I hope that helps. <3
