Birth Trauma Awareness Week 2020
The 2020 theme for Birth Trauma Awareness Week is
These feelings can play a role in the development of postnatal anxiety, depression or other stress-related disorders. What we have discovered, is that the response of loved ones and supporting healthcare professionals plays a fundamental role across 3 key factors;
- Trauma Identification
- Trauma Recognition
- Trauma Management.
ABTA wants women and their families to know that they aren’t alone and that there is help and support available. We are deeply honoured to the women who are brave enough to share their stories with us each year, in the hope that they could help others. We encourage each and every person impacted by a trauma from the birth experience to raise their voices because #yourstorymatters and we encourgae you to #starttheconversation so that more can be done to better prevent, diagnose and treat birth trauma.
