When ABTA was founded, one of our key objectives included reducing the rates of birth trauma in Australia and New Zealand. A question that we are frequently asked by both mums-to-be and mums that have experienced birth-related trauma is ‘How can I best prepare for pregnancy and birth’? We also have an ever increasing amount of first-time parents asking us for advice.
Our philosophy, is to encourage a multi-disciplinary and individualised approach to care that recognises each woman’s life experiences, values, wants, needs and physical health requirements and we encourage our health professionals to do the same. You can read more about ABTA’s position here.
