I am sorry for your loss. An abortion is like a loss of a loved one. It generates a grief reaction in the mother which can be profound in many. But it is also important to understand that it is natural in the first month or so. It usually goes away in a couple of months. If it persists beyond this period we might have to look for abnormal conditions such as depression. In any case from a psychological standpoint you have to understand some things. The loss is not reversible. So do not try to hold on to it. Accept the loss. Share your thoughts and feelings with near and dear ones, do not keep it to yourself. Spend quality time with family and friends. Reengage and spend more time in hobbies. Sleep and eat well; drink lot of water. Listen to calming music, do yoga and pranayam. You should get well soon. If this state continues for a few more weeks, please consult a psychiatrist.
