Trauma and Birth Stress (TABS)


w. www.tabs.org.nz

TABS (Trauma and Birth Stress) is a charitable trust that serves as a support group of mothers – “mothers supporting mothers”. We formed TABS because of the need to make Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) known as a form of mental illness that can happen after childbirth. We raise awareness of PTSD by: making presentations to professional and lobby groups involved in maternity services; supplying information to the media; publishing a regular newsletter and distributing a pamphlet about PTSD. We also run study days on a regular basis – please refer to our website for scheduled dates.
