One in three births in Australia is described as traumatic, though some believe this simply represents the tip of the iceberg.
Trauma experienced by one parent will ripple across to their entire family. In order for families to thrive, it is important that we turn these statistics around.
What is birth trauma? Why is it so common? How does it affect families? What can we do to reduce the potential for birth-related trauma? What steps can we take to heal from it?
These are questions that families and birth professionals alike grapple with too often.
This gathering is aimed at providing some answers. It is open to anyone who is or has been impacted by birth trauma—families, or the professionals who serve them in birth.
