As you will know, most of the information presented in this website has been informed by what other mothers like you have said or experienced. HMHF is about sharing information for the benefit of other mothers, future mothers, mothers you know. The checklists below contain challenges that other mothers identify as some of the barriers to their own health, wellbeing or future lifegoals. Life doesn’t slow down or stop when we become mothers. Life doesn’t stop or slow down when our children have challenges or higher care needs. What can change when we become mothers is our prioritisation of others, our health and our life goals.
