The Birth Trauma Association (BTA) was established in 2004 to support women suffering from postnatal post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and to offer basic advice and support to other women who are finding it hard to cope with their childbirth experience.

They are not trained counsellors or therapists or medical professionals. They are mothers who wish to support other women who have suffered difficult births and they aim to offer advice and support to all women who are finding it hard to cope with their childbirth experience.

They aim to tackle the problem with work which is focused on three main areas:

  • Raising awareness of birth trauma
  • Working to prevent it
  • Supporting families in need
