Research Projects at Mamas

Mamas for Mamas always works to fill the gaps. This can mean many things, including working with universities and researchers nationally. We believe everyone deserves to have their voice heard and that their input matters. Our online and physical locations have asked for our caregivers to participate in various studies and research, and they have delivered in so many impactful ways. This effort by our communities allowed Mamas for Mamas to partner with the University of British Columbia (UBC) School of Nursing. Their goal was to speak with mamas and caregivers about their experiences accessing resources in their communities. Please see their findings below. 

 

 

The success of this collaboration has allowed UBC to move on to the second phase of their research and we are so thrilled to be a part of this. This phase will be complete at the end of 2023. 

If you are interested in submitting your research to be shared within the mamas communities, please complete apply below.
