Éadaoin Hennessy 

BA [Hons] Visual Communication Design

A passionate, problem-solving designer from County Clare, I'm all about meaningful, considered design that drives change. I deliver crafted, user-centred solutions across print, digital and 3D environments. My strongest capabilities are in visual identity design, user experience design and art direction, with developing skills for speculative design futures. I especially love working with a team and collaborating across disciplines. I have gained fantastic experience on internships in Dublin and Austria and recently received an Indigo silver award for main title design.

Project Description

Over 58% of mothers surveyed would have liked more support in recovering from childbirth, and 67% would have liked more emotional support following childbirth. Mamóg is a postpartum care package possibly funded by a national health organisation for new mothers. Mamóg provides the childbirth recovery support and emotional support that so many mothers feel they lack. Physical recovery support is achieved with an ultrasound cushion and AI powered companion app, that monitors and facilitates a new mother’s recovery from birth, until their six-week checkup. Emotional support comes through a network of volunteer mothers or ‘Mamóg mentors’ accessible on the app. Most mothers voiced a lack of emotional support after childbirth, expressing feelings of isolation, loneliness, and a fear or resistance to ask for help. Mamóg provides supportive, accessible physical and emotional postpartum care.
