Share Your Story
The Community Story Blog is welcoming your stories of birth trauma, obstetric or gynaecological mistreatment, pregnancy & infant loss, abortion, fertility care, permanent contraception, and other forms of reproductive healthcare.
The purpose of the blog is to start a conversation about mistreatment and abuse in reproductive healthcare by providing a space for stories to be widely shared that might not otherwise have a platform, with an end goal of influencing change across the province.
Visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information about the project.
Feel free to share as much or as little as you are comfortable sharing. It doesn't have to be long (but it can be!) and it doesn't have to be perfect - just tell your story in your own words!
Contact us anytime if you have questions or would like support getting started. If you'd prefer not to use the submission form, email submissions directly to firstname.lastname@example.org

We acknowledge that it may be difficult or even traumatizing to recall these experiences. We hope that speaking out about what happened can be a tool for healing and change!
