Walk n Talk

Student midwives walking for better births for all women

We’re #startingtheconversation and joining Walk N Talk!

During birth trauma awareness week the 19th - 25th of July we are joining 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.

As student midwives we have seen how beautiful birth is but that for some women these birth experiences do not leave them empowered but rather traumatised by the lack of understanding and disconnect from what their bodies have achieved and been through.

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.

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.
