Question
I'm so ashamed to say I took the abortion pill mifegyne on the 25th of april and deeply know now that I want my baby .....today I am 9 weeks 1 day pregnant ....do you know any babies that have been born in a similar situation and if so ....did they have any abnormalities and how severe? Thank you xox

Answer
Hello, Lauren,

I answered you earlier. Did you get my message? Here is what I said:

Hello, laurenmuir,

Since you are nine weeks, it is VERY UNLIKELY the pills will cause any damage whatsoever! Go see a good doctor, and tell him about it, and follow his recommendations. Don't go to anyone who thinks abortion is acceptable. It is bad medical practice and unethical, so people who think otherwise do not have good medical judgment. The doctor may recommend you be given progesterone for a couple of weeks, but I don't expect this would even be necessary. This is because the baby is already making his own progesterone.

I just got a message the other day from a woman who did what you did, and regretted it, and she wanted to save her baby, and I told her what I am telling you. The message the other day had two pictures of her baby. He was born completely normal.

Take heart. Go see a doctor. If you need any help finding one, let me know. Please keep in touch.

Expertise

I can help women with the consideration of their decision, and with resources, and I can share my own experiences as the mother of seven and grandmother of eleven. My approach is to show love and concern, and help women work through the issues, emotional, spiritual, practical. I also help women deal with boyfriend and family issues. I am not a doctor, but I have done extensive medical research, so I may be able to help with information. I am female. When you write, if you are or were pregnant, please tell me how far along you were or are, and if you have had an abortion, please tell me what kind. Thank you.

Experience

I have been working with women who are considering abortion for several years. I also work with women who have had abortions. Our family has also experienced adoption, so I can talk about that as well.

Education/Credentials
I am mostly self-taught. I also studied midwifery for awhile. I have spent years doing research on this topic. In fact, I have been doing research and working in this area since the early 1970's. I have been helping women online for a few years, under the guidance of a woman who was formally training in counseling.
