Back in April 2011 the lovely Jayne and I launched Maternity Matters, which was initially a collaborative site dedicated towards raising awareness of birth trauma. A place where women could read stories similar to their own. Where they could share their own stories. Where they could receive advice, guidance and support after a traumatic birth. Having both experienced birth trauma, we wanted to create a small space where we could feel we would not be judged, and we are proud of the work we’ve done.
In the time since the site launched, Jayne and I have gone on to have more babies (two in my case) and though our personal blogs have continued to evolve, our work together has been on the back burner a little. Which leads me on to Maternity Matters: part two….
