25 November 2020
The Sleep/Wake Research Centre at Massey University are investigating what sleep related information, services and interventions currently available to New Zealand women. The findings will be used in future research on how to best support sleep, circadian and mental health during the perinatal period.
This work has been funded by a Health Research Council of New Zealand, Health Delivery Activation Grant and is conducted by a team of researchers with expertise in maternal sleep and maternal mental health (Professor Leigh Signal, Dr Bronwyn Sweeney, Clare Ladyman, Dr Tanya Wright, Dr Mark Huthwaite, Associate Professor Katie Sharkey, Dr Bei Bei and Professor Jane Fisher), Māori health (Professor Chris Cunningham and Hannah Mooney) and Pacific health (Dr Riz Firestone) and in collaboration with Te Hiringa Hauora/Health Promotion Agency and Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Aotearoa.
The survey has 10 questions and should take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete. Participation in the survey is voluntary and responses will be kept completely confidential.
If you support hauora wāhine, women's health and well-being during pregnancy and/or the postpartum The Sleep/Wake Research Centre warmly invites you to complete this survey whether or not you offer sleep information, services or interventions.
