What does the app do?

Tuku Iho is a bi-lingual resource, in te reo Māori and English, for whānau hapū, māmā hapū and māmā hou that shares intergenerational knowledge in maternal and child wellbeing.

The app opens with a mihi followed by information on being hapū and preparing for pēpi.

  • The 'being hapū' section includes information about the changes to your body, including the mental and emotional changes, advice about nutrition and how to prepare for birth.
  • Other sections of the app have information on what to expect in the first six weeks, both for māmā and pēpi, covering topics like breastfeeding, baby blues, postnatal depression, safe sleep and pēpi's sleep routine.
  • Apart from reading the information as text, the app also provides narration, in both te reo Māori and English.
