Help us provide birth-related trauma support services.

In Australia, 1 in 3 women identify their births as traumatic and, 1 in 4 first-time mothers suffer major physical injuries such a perineal tears and pelvic floor muscle trauma.

For too long birthing parents and families have suffered in silence, but the power is in sharing our stories and using our voices so other people don't need to walk this journey alone. With your help we can ensure no person is left feeling alone and unheard after experiencing birth-related trauma.

Join us for our virtual Walk n Talk event to #starttheconversation and raise vital funds for birth-related trauma support.

Let's work towards #betterhealing together.

Let's work together towards #betterhealing

In Australia, 1 in 3 women identify their births as traumatic and, 1 in 4 first-time mothers suffer major physical injuries such a perineal tears and pelvic floor muscle trauma. These experiences often leave a long-lasting impact on a woman’s physical and mental health, their ability to bond with their baby and their relationships with their partners, family, friends and the wider community. The ABTA wants women and their families to know that they aren’t alone and that there is help and support available. We are deeply honoured by 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 birth trauma to raise their voices to stop the stigma and we encourage you to #starttheconversation so that more can be done to better prevent, diagnose and treat birth trauma.
