Birth Trauma Awareness Week 2020
The 2020 theme for Birth Trauma Awareness Week is
It’s about families sharing stories on the road to parenthood, on the road to recovery and beyond.
This year, as part of Birth Trauma Awareness Week we have our first ever fundraiser; A virtual walk n talk, encouraging women and families to start the conversation and to let others know that they don’t have to walk this journey alone.
This event is about sharing our stories on the road to parenthood, on the road to recovery and beyond. While you walk, talk and enjoy the great outdoors, you will be helping us raise funds to extend our Peer2Peer Meets support group program throughout Australia and New Zealand and ensure no woman is left feeling alone and unheard in their trauma.
If you would like to support us on the day you can;
- Register to Walk N Talk and buy an ABTA T-shirt to wear on the day. Maybe get a team together, you can Walk N Talk with friends, family or colleagues, anyone you want to share this journey with.
- Ask for support: Share your individual fundraising page with family, friends and colleagues. Make sure you tell them why this is important to you and ask for donations to support the ABTA.
- Walk N Talk! Saturday September 12, 2020, go solo or meet up with your squad for a 5km walk and start talking. Share your story and encourage others to share theirs.
The 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 birth-related trauma to raise their voices because #yourstorymatters and we encourage you to #starttheconversation so that more can be done to better prevent, diagnose and treat birth trauma.
