The Pavee Point Traveller Maternal Health Initiative addresses the lack of Traveller engagement with mainstream antenatal education. Mainstream resources are generally inaccessible and inappropriate for Traveller women given lower literacy rates and the lack of culturally appropriate materials. This initiative bridges this gap through the development of Traveller specific maternity resources, providing information in a manner that is tailored to be culturally appropriate, providing information in relation to antenatal, intra-partum, postnatal and infant health.
This digital resource is part of an overall resource pack, which includes an offline equivalent. The purpose of this site is to provide an easily accessible resource that Traveller women can access via the phones or other devices, and that can be updated over time with further relevant or changing information.
