    WHAM is a collaboration between The MAMMI Study, Trinity College Dublin and the University of Barcelona, Spain.

    We developed this course with and for mothers on the information that they ‘wish they had known', mothers (participants of the MAMMI Study at Trinity College Dublin) told us that following childbirth, they struggled to find reliable and trustworthy information around their own health postpartum. Mothers often do not know how or where to seek help for their own healthcare, and many do not voice their concerns about their own health due to embarrassment, stigma or fear of being judged.

    Presented over four sessions the course delivers evidence-based content from health experts and shares real women’s stories and experiences of motherhood and postpartum health.

    It addresses topics such as

    • Expectations of yourself and motherhood
    • Physical health
    • Continence postpartum and pelvic floor health
    • Speaking up for and prioritising your health
    • Mental health and well-being
    • Sexual health and intimate relationships

    Through short videos, articles, infographics, fun interactive activities and discussion points, this course aims to

    • bridge the information gap in women’s postpartum health knowledge
    • enable women to understand the postpartum health issues that may be common but not normal
    • encourage women to speak up and start conversations about motherhood and maternal health
    • provide women with health promotion strategies and tips, to enable them to take positive action for their health!
