I'm fundraising for a great cause!
On Saturday 12 September, I’ll be pushing a 45kg double pram for 5km to raise funds for the Australasian Birth Trauma Association. I’ll be joined by my family as we #starttheconversation for the Walk n Talk event to raise awareness around birth trauma and it’s impact on families.
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.
ABTA is almost entirely funded by donations and I hope to raise funds and awareness for them. If you could donate to my fundraising, every dollar will help ABTA expand their support service and 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
Wow! You people are amazing!Friday 4th Sep I was overwhelmed and delighted to hit my initial $250 fundraising goal - so I went all out and upped it to a whopping $1000!
