Study helps new mums via SMS

We always love a great idea, especially when it involves SMS.

A new research project run by the University of Western Australia pairs up expectant mothers with mothers who have been there and done that. The project aims to help new mums cope with mental health issues, which can arise during and after pregnancy.

The "mummy buddies" project pairs up expectant mums with a mummy mentor and they can exchange text messages when the new mum has a question.

The mummy project has already helped new mums and the UWA is still on the lookout for expectant mums and mentors.
