'It Takes a Village to Breastfeed'

This report documents Māori and Pasifika women’s experiences of breastfeeding across the South Island.

The voices of women in this project illustrate that it ‘takes a village to breastfeed,’ surrounding oneself with a support network that is able to ‘mother the mother’. 

Te Reo Māori Finding in Pre-diabetes Research

New research from the Healthier Lives National Science Challenge has found Māori people who speak te reo Māori have a reduced risk of progressing from pre-diabetes to diabetes.

'This finding suggests that language and cultural identity are positive for health, particularly in Indigenous communities' say the researchers.
