self-care guide to abortion
Self- Care Guide to Abortion is an infographic designed with the young independent woman in mind. Abortion is a topic not usually spoken about, but is just as big a part of womanhood as giving birth or periods are. 3-10 women have abortions, and of these, many experience depression, suicidal behavior and post-abortion trauma afterwards. It is important to understand that these women’s feelings, regardless of opinion on the issue, are still valid.
My goal with this infographic, was to present in a clean, modern and appealing aesthetic, a guide for women struggling through the aftermath of an abortion. I aspired to inform the public and people struggling through the subject, about the obstacles some may face as well as where to seek guidance.
