“Volunteers are the lifeblood of the ABTA and we place a very high value on volunteers’ contributions, no matter how large or small. The strength of ABTA lies in the fact that everyone who chooses to become involved does so because they have a personal understanding of the effects of a difficult birth experience whether directly as the birthing person or indirectly as the non-birthing partner or health care professional.”
