I'm fundraising for a great cause!

I'm #startingtheconversation and joining Walk N Talk!

On Saturday September 12, I'm joining the hundreds as we Walk N Talk in support of The Australasian Birth Trauma Association (ABTA).

ABTA is a national charity committed to reducing the instance and impact of birth-related trauma whilst supporting affected women, families and health professionals.

1 in 3 Australian women identify their birth as traumatic and research suggests that 10-20% of first-time mothers may suffer major irreversible physical birth trauma. It's likely that you know someone who has experienced birth trauma.

The ABTA is almost entirely funded by donations and I hope to raise vital funds and awareness for them. Please donate to my fundraising and every dollar will help ABTA expand their support service/reach more women in need Nationwide.

For too long women 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. #starttheconversation.

You can help make a difference. Please help by supporting my Walk n Talk.

Baby Kate

Sunday 23rd Aug
When baby Kate was born it was a scary time she got stuck and had her cord wrapped around her neck her oxygen was cut off and it took 3 minutes for her to be resuscitated 😢 while that was happening I suffered a massive bleed over 2Litres and was rushed to theatre,  she was taken straight to special care and we didn’t get to have our first cuddle for about 24 hours 😔 this was a very traumatic experience for everyone involved. Luckily for me I was aware of what happened and why and with my studies, experience and support network we were okay. For a lot of women and their families this isn’t always the case and birth trauma can have long lasting consequences, affecting mental health, relationships and future family planning. Please support this amazing charity to raise awareness and support for this important cause ❤️
