Australasian Birth Trauma Association (ABTA)

The Australasian Birth Trauma Association (ABTA) is Australia's peak organisation dedicated to helping to prevent, diagnose, and treat birth-related trauma. The ABTA listens to the voice of the consumer and responds to the unmet needs of birthing families across Australia. Since 2016, the ABTA has helped increase awareness and understanding of birth-related trauma and worked to improve maternity services to ensure people living with birth-related trauma have the best care and quality of life as possible. Whether you’re preparing for birth, healing from birth, or supporting a birthing person, the ABTA is here to help. Our vision is for physically and psychologically safer births, and better postnatal care.

Janette Yee

Janette is an Athletic Therapist and Massage Therapist in Toronto. Over her 17-year career she has worked with amateur to elite athletes from every sport, specializing in running and rugby injuries. The toughest athletes by far are her moms.
Janette’s business offers in-home pregnancy and postpartum rehabilitation. Her desire to focus on this underserved population stems from her athletes’ and her own experiences of uninformed and inadequate care. A major lack of resources to assist in rehabilitation from the physical trauma of childbirth lead her to her mission: to bridge the healthcare gap between the day of childbirth and the safe return to activity/exercise/sport.
Virtual rehabilitation is offered as a means to address the common issue of therapy accessibility. Via video conferencing, birth mothers and athletes from all sports can now benefit from Janette's expertise.
Aside from one-on-one care, Janette is passionate about educating the public, as well as those who provide physical care for birth mothers. She has recently created an online program for birth mothers called "Foundations of Postpartum Exercise and Recovery". Current projects include evidence-based continuing education for physicians, therapists, and fitness industry specialists. In addition, she curates workshops for corporate entities. With more health care specialists armed with better prenatal and postpartum training, Janette believes that more women can be returned to healthy, pain-free active living.

Australian Multiple Birth Association (AMBA)

The Australian Multiple Birth Association (AMBA) supports families with twins, triplets or more though the health and emotional challenges they face – the key ones being premature birth and mental health risks.  We do this by linking families to a support network with other local multiple birth families, providing education and resources, and advocating on behalf of parents of multiples with the aim to enable positive health outcomes and equality for multiple birth families.
