The aim of this presentation is to facilitate a greater understanding of the key contributors to birth-related trauma and encourage ways in which we can improve outcomes for families by starting conversations.
Amy will be talking about my own experience of birth-related trauma and sharing the findings from the support that the ABTA has offered for the last 3 years, including information from the birth preparation survey that we ran during last year's Birth Trauma Awareness Week.
This year's theme for Birth Trauma Awareness Week 2020 is 'Journeys', again starting the conversation so women and their families know they do not have to walk the path to recovery alone.
Presented by Amy Dawes from Australasian Birth Trauma Association
Amy is an effective advocate for bringing women, clinicians and researchers together to support women and families affected by birth trauma. In 2017, Amy launched the Australasian Birth Trauma Association (ABTA), she has established a not-for-profit organisation focused on the recognition and understanding of birth-related complications.
With a multi-disciplinary advisory group of midwives, physiotherapists, obstetricians, gynaecologists, perinatal psychiatrists and clinical researchers, she is working to develop the resources and strategies to prevent and effectively manage birth-related trauma.
Amy’s understanding of the issues has come from her own experience, and the many women she has listened to and helped to find support. Amy’s vision is to break down the stigma attached to birth trauma, and empower women to feel comfortable speaking out, so to continue driving change in current maternity practices in Australia and New Zealand.
