Online Event

The Australasian Birth Trauma Association are an incredible organisation and worthy of our attention. Because 1 in 3 women suffer from birth trauma, psychological and/or physical and there is very low awareness and understanding of birth-related trauma in the community, including pathways to support. ABTA is an incredible organisation that is fighting for change in maternity healthcare and postpartum support to ensure these statistics significantly reduce through lobbying for government funding, research, and training. They also provide free peer-to-peer support groups and programs, mentorship, and online resources and services for women, men, and their families affected by birth trauma. To find out more visit their website: https://www.birthtrauma.org.au/

This fundraiser was epic! We had the perfect guest speakers tackling some hard topics including, Amy Dawes the CEO of ABTA, Nadine Muller Life Coach & Mindset Mentor & birth trauma survivor, Bernadette from Core & Floor Restore, Steph Thompson author of The Day My Vagina Broke, Fiona Reid a midwife and advocate for secondary birth trauma, Shari Lyon the leading Hypnobirthing practitioner and Nicola Laye a breath and wellness coach who finished off with some meditation. 

Together with ticket price and raffle, we raised $2,386.00 and over 10 prizes were won! A big thank you to our sponsors for the event who donated towards the goodie bags and raffle, it really would not have been what it was without you!

See videos of speakers below - this is now available to everyone as it is information, stories and education we should all have access to. Enjoy!
