What the women had to say to the grant trustees and to others thinking of attending:
September 2018 workshop…
“For someone who has experienced birth trauma, it’s very difficult to articulate your story. This course gave me a safe space to start my journey of healing. The support within this amazing group of women is so inspirational and I feel ready to begin the rest of my journey. Thank you so much to the group and also Kirsten, Jade and Larissa. And also to you (the grant body) for the funding to make a course like this happen. I cannot express how grateful I am”. ~ Amelia
“ Dear the Grant Board, You don’t know what it means to me that I could afford to take this workshop, given that I haven’t been able to work for some time. I can’t thank you enough. I have been battling the darkness of the birth trauma for 2.5 years and was terrified of my next birth and going through it all again. This workshop has made me feel, for the first time since my daughter’s birth, not alone and most importantly, validated. Thank you so much. Because of your funding, there is a light at the end of the tunnel”. ~ Leonie
“Dear Grant Board, Today has been transformative for me. I would never have been able to come if it weren’t for the funding, I am so grateful”. ~ Becky
“Thank you for the funding you have provided. It has been so valuable to have the time to address issues relating to birth trauma that have such a profound effect on life. This has been a wonderful safe space to do that alongside others”.
“Thank you so much for your financial contributions to enable the Birth Trauma Workshop to happen. It has been so helpful to come today, share my trauma with women who have experienced their own, and be supported by the professionals and enabled to find positivity, acceptance and forgiveness in myself (or at least to begin that process). At full price I feel I would not have justified coming, and yet actually today has been priceless. Thanks,”. ~ Sorrell
“The Birth Trauma workshop is amazing. It was more helpful than I could have ever imagined to be with other people that have also suffered birth trauma and to have people running the day that are so calming, kind and supportive. I feel less alone and feel more able to move forward. I can’t thank you enough for supplying a grant. I wouldn’t have been able to attend without it and it has been so useful that thank you doesn’t seem to cover it. I hope you will be able to do it again to help more people. Thank you.”
“The Birth Trauma workshop is a great opportunity to meet people with similar experience. It took me 2.5 years and I must admit the lower price helped me make the final decision to book!”
February 2019 workshop…
“Dear mama, I arrived with anxiety about the day. I needn’t have. Like a big hug, Kirsten, Larissa and Jade nourished us and guided us through an emotional day with life-changing potential. After a year of feeling a bit lost, low and disconnected, I have come away with acceptance of what has been, awareness of what is and hope for what might be to come”
Could you be the next funding body to make this much difference to women who have suffered from Birth Trauma?
