A safe space to consider your pregnancy options. Haven is a space for women, men and families to find information and get support when facing an unintended pregnancy, baby loss or post termination. 

We offer a free, confidential, safe space to be heard without judgement and talk about what continuing a pregnancy would look like with the right kind of support. Our hope is to inform, empower and equip you in your journey. 

Our Haven Support Coordinators understand the stress of an unintended pregnancy and realise this can be very overwhelming. As we journey with you, you will have time, information and support to consider all of your options. You are not alone.

Living in Colour is a healing and recovery programme for women who have experienced abortion. Abortion-related grief remains something of a taboo topic in society, making it difficult to process the emotional impact it can have on us, and hard to find a sense of closure. The unresolved loss can show up in many ways, including depression, anger, relationship difficulties, anxiety and substance abuse. Sometimes, it does not surface until decades later. This 8 week course gently helps you process what was happening for you at the time, who was involved and the emotional impact of the decision. The final chapter of it celebrates the process of emerging from the “grey zone” of unresolved loss into a life of greater colour and freedom. Find out more here.
