Calling all parents and parents-to-be

Are you a parent or a parent-to-be? By taking part in a quick online survey, you can help improve the information provided by the HSE during pregnancy and/or your child’s early years. Parents who have been through some or all of these stages are the best people to help do that.

The purpose of this survey is to get your views on:

·         Your information needs during pregnancy and early childhood
·         Resources given to parents by the HSE 
·         Your experiences of antenatal classes

About the HSE’s Nurture Programme:

This survey is part of research with parents being under taken by the Nurture Programme: Infant Health and Wellbeing. The Nurture Programme is designed to improve the information and professional supports provided to parents by the HSE during pregnancy and the first three years of their baby’s life. 

Among the projects being delivered in 2018, there will be a new child health website, a new healthy pregnancy book, updated versions of the Caring for Your Baby and Child books, standards for antenatal education, blended learning training programmes for practitioners, an updated standardised child health record and the universal delivery of an updated Child Safety Programme.

The Nurture Programme is being delivered by the HSE supported by a grant from the Atlantic Philanthrophies through the Katharine Howard Foundation (KHF). Implementation support is provided by the Centre for Effective Services (CES).
