The committee has received over 4000 submissions.
Thank you to all individuals who have contributed to the inquiry. Sharing your story will help inform the committee's understanding of the issues.
Please note, the committee will be prioritising the processing and reviewing of submissions from individuals residing in NSW. While all other individual submissions will be distributed and considered by members, they will likely be kept confidential.
Submissions about individual experiences will inform our thinking about birth trauma. However, this inquiry will not be conducting investigations or reviews of individual cases.
