Hapai Taumaha Hapūtanga/Crisis Pregnancy Support is a GP-based, free service in Nelson, New Zealand, that offers confidential, emotional and practical care for women who find themselves unexpectedly pregnant or require support in their pregnancies. We also offer support for all pregnancy loss including abortion grief.
We aim to live up to the name gifted to us “Hapai Taumaha Hapūtanga” Hapai (to carry) Taumaha (to be heavy or burdened) Hapūtanga (pregnancy). We understand that sometimes pregnancy can feel “heavy”, we want to help carry some of that weight, standing shoulder to shoulder with you, working in partnership to help you navigate this stressful time.
The easiest way to find out how we may be able to help you is to just give us a call, the appointment is free, and all our care coordinators are trained healthcare professionals, so you’ll be able to ask us any of the questions and concerns you have.
If you wish to use our Nelson based service please ring (0800) 004 277 (freephone) and speak to our receptionist who will put you in touch with a care coordinator so that a free appointment can be arranged for you at St Luke’s Health Centre, on the corner of Waimea Road, opposite of the Nelson Public Hospital (The carpark entrance is off of Motueka Street)
