Walk n Talk

Echuca Regional Health Maternity Ward

We’re #startingtheconversation and joining Walk N Talk!

On Saturday September 12, we are joining the team 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 we 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.

Thank you to our Sponsors
