About the ABTA
The ABTA’s vision is to prepare every woman and health professional with the tools, knowledge and power to have a trauma free birth and improve the quality of life for those affected.
What is Birth Trauma?
The delivery of a baby can be a positive experience for some women, but for others it can be very negative, resulting in physical and/or psychological injuries (trauma).
Birth Trauma Awareness Week
The ABTA wants women and their families to know that they aren’t alone and that there is help and support available. See what else we are doing for Birth Trauma Awareness Week 2020.

We are deeply honoured to the women who are brave enough to share their stories with us each year, in the hope that they could help others. We encourage each and every person impacted by a trauma from the birth experience to raise their voices because #yourstorymatters and we encourgae you to #starttheconversation so that more can be done to better prevent, diagnose and treat birth trauma.
