Amplifying the voices of Colorado moms
Health eMoms is a program from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment that listens to real experiences from real moms across Colorado to better support moms and babies. Each year, we will invite 2,400 Colorado women to join Health eMoms and share their opinions and experiences during the first few years of their babies’ lives.
Mothers who join Health eMoms will receive two brief online surveys on a variety of health and social topics each year starting shortly after they give birth and continuing up until their child’s third birthday. Participating mothers receive electronic gift cards for each completed survey with chances to win more over the three years of the study.
Impacting issues that matter to moms
The purpose of the study is to gain a better understanding of the experiences of mothers and their babies so we can develop and improve programs and policies that support women, children and families in Colorado.
Health eMoms asks mothers about:
How they feel physically and emotionally after having their baby.
Their opinions on taking leave from work, childhood vaccinations, and other important decisions.
Their experiences with doctors and other health care workers during and after pregnancy.
Their family’s access to health care, health services and other resources that they need to be happy and healthy.
And much more!
