The mummatters screening tool will not be available after 31 March 2022.
mummatters has been an important way Bupa supported new mums over the past five years. Developed with health experts and researchers in the field of perinatal mental health, mummatters is an online tool giving women a way to check their risk of perinatal depression and anxiety and get support if they need it.

The clinical components of mummatters were developed by lead researchers and specialists at St John of God Burwood Hospital and the University of New South Wales. It is an online program designed for pregnant and postnatal women to self-assess for potential indicators of perinatal depression.
mummatters should only be used as an information resource. It is not designed to provide a clinical diagnosis of anxiety or depression, and should not be relied on as a substitute for the advice of a health care professional.
