Twitter can be a good place to find online support for those experiencing birth trauma and/or birth loss. However, these are not advisory groups to help you work through your trauma, rather a place where you can share with those with similar experiences.

The hardest thing abt being Admin on the @BirthTrauma fb group isn't keeping it safe for 7.7k members. Nor seeing endless heartbreaking stories of loss & broken bodies, minds & relationships. It's the relentless pumping in of new join requests which weighs heaviest. #mhaw19

5th Annual London Birth Trauma event is selling so quickly. We have our venue confirmed, @ConwayHall. We have a growing array of speakers. Live poetry. Hope to see you there!
