Work, Health and Emotional Lives of Midwives (WHELM)

Studies undertaken within this program of work use validated tools to measure rates of anxiety, stress, depression and burnout within the midwifery workforce.

This program of work is designed to identify factors that promote well-being and improve the working lives of midwives.
