Blog

In this blog, women and their families share their experience of birth trauma. These stories are shared in their own voice and may be distressing to some readers.

Please take care to ensure you are ready to read these stories today and engage in the self-care and support you need to process what these stories bring up for you.

We tell these stories because many people find them helpful and it informs us all of the wide range of birth experiences families undergo.

“When there is one way, one story, learning is stunted. When we have more stories, we have more from which to learn. We see over and over again how choices, options, more stories, help us all.”

You can submit your story by emailing ABTA.
