Spina Bifida Association of Tasmania

Members receive support and periodic newsletters plus other benefits.

The Spina Bifida Association of Tasmania is a voluntary organisation providing support and assistance to parents of children with the congenital spinal defect.

When a baby is born with Spina bifida, parents who already have a child with spina bifida make themselves available to visit the new parents, at what is a very stressful time with the realisation that their baby will face challenges all through its life.
