I'm fundraising for a great cause!

I'm ready to #starttheconversation and join the Walk N Talk!


During the week 19-25th July, I'm joining the Walk N Talk in support of the Australasian Birth Trauma Association (ABTA).

The ABTA is a peer-led community dedicated to helping Australian and New Zealanders prevent and heal from birth-related trauma. The ABTA does this through advocacy, education, research and peer-led support.

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. Anyone can experience birth-related trauma including people giving birth, their partner, family and friends and even health professionals. It's likely that you know someone who has experienced birth-related trauma, even if they haven't spoken about it before.

The ABTA is almost entirely funded by donations and I hope to raise vital funds and awareness for them. Your donations will help fund vital programs that better prepare women for birth and help all those impacted by birth trauma towards a better recovery.

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.

You can help make a difference. Please help by supporting my Walk n Talk #starttheconversation #betterhealing #walkntalk

Issy & all that are making the effort for this very worthy cause - giving birth is very special and having a positive experience stays with you for life. I am very grateful to my midwives Terry & Louise. I am also very proud to be supporting the next generation of midwives in their endeavours to reduce birth trauma and provide positive experiences for women giving birth and those around them at this very special time in their life. For those that experience birth trauma I hope all our donations help support you and you can move forward to enjoy being a mum/parent.
