Walk N Talk FAQs

What is Walk N Talk?

The ABTA's Walk N Talk is a virtual event that you can do anywhere in Australia. You decide where and how much you walk during Birth Trauma Awareness Week (19-25 July). You can walk with friends, family or colleagues to raise awareness and encourage conversations about birth trauma. We encourage you to show your support for the ABTA by purchasing a T-shirt to wear during your walk. Don't forget to share your walk on social media using the hashtags #starttheconversation #betterhealing #walkntalk

Who can register?

Anyone! Whether you’re 2 friends, a whole squad, a workplace, a family or anything in between – registering for Walk N Talk is easy, just click the ‘register’ button.

How much does it cost to register?

It’s completely free to register and participate in Walk N Talk. You can sign up by clicking the register button. You can purchase your Walk N Talk t-shirt when you register.

Where do the funds go that I raise?

Every dollar you raise will go towards the ABTA, working to reduce the rate of birth related trauma and help parents who have experienced birth trauma.

You'll help fund vital programs such as our Peer2Peer Meets support groups, a 7-week program that helps parents who have suffered from birth related trauma, and THINKNATAL a series of educational resources helping better prepare women for pregnancy and birth.

You can find out more about the ABTA and our programs on our website https://www.birthtrauma.org.au/

Is there a minimum amount I have to raise?

Raise as much as you can. Every dollar raised goes towards funding ABTA life change work in supporting women and their families experiencing birth related trauma. If you purchase a t-shirt that amount will go to your fundraising total.
