Holistic pregnancy, birth & beyond 

About Me




I’m Abby and welcome to Haven.


I am a Registered Nurse and Midwife, Hypnobirthing practitioner and now a new mama to my little side kick, Jimmy. We live in the beautiful Northern region of Tasmania. 

It took me a while in life to work out which direction I was going in but after moving interstate, travelling the world and having a go at a few different career paths, I have found myself immersed in the wonderful world of pregnancy, birth and post-partum care. 

Becoming pregnant at the start of 2020 was a crazy time, as for most expectant parents. Antenatal classes were cancelled, face-to-face appointments were limited and connection to our caregivers compromised. The village we needed around us had all but disappeared.

I gave birth to Jimmy in December 2020 and had such an amazing experience. It was during my maternity leave that I knew I had to do more to help other women experience a positive birth and transition into motherhood.


I often think what inspires me in life, and it’s women. Haven was born through this inspiration. 


Group Workshop

This workshop not only gives you an opportunity to learn hypnobirthing techniques but also to connect and share stories with others on your journey into becoming parents.

Private 1:1

Sometimes group workshops don’t suit everyone, or is difficult to
attend due to other commitments. The in-home workshop is very
flexible with time and schedule.


By definition a Haven is a safe or peaceful place and that’s exactly what I wanted to create. This is a space where women and their families feel empowered and supported during pregnancy, birth and beyond.
