SHAPER-PND is a trial taking place across South London. BREATHE melodies for Mums offers new mothers with postnatal depression (and their babies aged 0-9 months) 10 weeks of free community singing sessions (or another mother-baby activity, followed by the singing sessions).
Participants should know that the trial also involves attending three research assessments throughout the course of the study period over Zoom.
Women can self-refer if they are 18 years and over and their baby is aged 0-9 months via the registration page here: https://breatheahr.org/forms/breathe-melodies-for-mums-shaper-registration-form/ ; or, alternatively, women can email BREATHE directly at email@example.com
Once a mother registers on the website, BREATHE will get in contact with them and ask them to fill in a screening questionnaire that asks how they’ve been feeling in the past week. If eligible based on this form, they can then be enrolled into the study.
Here are some benefits of participating:
• 10 weeks free singing sessions specifically tailored towards mothers’ wellbeing and great way to connect with baby and other mothers experiencing similar symptoms.
• Songs are in different languages from around the world
• Compensation for each research assessment completed
• Can help with travel to sessions if needed
