Pavee Point Primary Health Care for Travellers Project has developed an innovative maternal health initiative, Pavee Mothers to try help address the gaps between maternity service provision and the Traveller community

Pavee Mothers uses a three pronged approach to enhance Traveller women’s engagement with maternity services.

This includes

  • a comprehensive antenatal information pack

  • an online mobile digital resource and

  • a text-message campaign providing reminders throughout the antenatal period

All these resources are designed in a way to make the information easy to access for Traveller mums-to-be and relevant to their needs.

Pavee Mothers will be launched in Pavee Point on Thursday 27th September at 11am.

Pavee Mothers was developed thanks to the Animate – Healthy Community Award 2017/2018 by Social Innovation Fund Ireland in partnership with Medtronic and the Department of Rural and Community Development via the Dormant Accounts Fund.
