Brief Summary:
The investigators' mobile application-based community, termed Momba, will provide a bi-directional flow of information on maternal and infant mental health to traditionally underrepresented groups of mothers and their infants. The overall goal of this mobile application-based community of low-income postpartum women and infants is to increase the social support, social networks, and social capital of low-income mothers; thereby, leading to a positive change in the health behaviors, utilization of health services, and mental health status of both mothers and their infants.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Access to MOMBA web-based application
Study will provide the subject with a smartphone, pay the data plan, and facilitate access to the web-based application for purposes of researching the acceptability of the application, the operating and functioning of it, and its impact on maternal mental health.
Behavioral: MOMBA web-based application
Web-based, interactive, social network application.

No Intervention: Smartphone only
Study will provide the subject with a smartphone and pay the data plan. Weekly assessments are completed through internet survey links sent via text message.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Feasibility, acceptability, and methodological parameters [ Time Frame: 15 months ]
    To determine, through a 15-month pilot randomized controlled trial, the potential feasibility, acceptability, and methodological parameters (proportion of eligible and willing study participants, rate of subject attrition, effect size, and power calculations) that are necessary to design a subsequent, appropriately powered, randomized controlled trial of Momba for new mothers.

  2. Test the proper operating and functioning of the MOMBA application [ Time Frame: 15 months ]
    To develop through a 15-month pilot study, a novel application, Momba, to promote mental health among low-income mothers recruited from a large, urban hospital. Subjects will be trained (together) on the operating and functions (including how to use the privacy settings) of the Momba application.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Acceptability and performance of structured questionnaires [ Time Frame: 15 months ]
    Via 15 months of application participation, we will assess the acceptability and performance of structured questionnaires in the categories of maternal satisfaction, utilization of intervention and adherence to protocol. Measures will be administered via the web- based application utilizing valid and reliable instruments. Participants will also complete Intake and 12 month Follow-up interviews.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Improve maternal emotional health [ Time Frame: 15 months ]

    Improve maternal emotional health, as measured by any/all of the following:

    • increased social support, social networks, and social capital of low-income mothers
    • positive change in measurable health behaviors
    • utilization of health services
    • mental health status of both mothers and their infants.
