To increase expectant parents’ knowledge and capacities, to encourage them to ask questions and to know their options, thereby in the long run, through pressure from the bottom-up, make positive changes to national maternity care systems.
Expectant parents cannot make choices based on information they do not have, nor can they have options if they do not know they have them. This project therefore proposes a three-pronged approach to adult education, using innovative methods to get to those parents who may not seek out prenatal education and perhaps do now know the questions to ask even if they do want more information:
- develop and provide high-quality, modern adult education to expectant parents using various media and methods of delivery in order to maximise uptake and input
- produce an innovative, evidence-based curriculum for prenatal education training both a cohort of childbirth educator tutors and childbirth educators who will deliver prenatal courses across four countries and four languages, with the goal of reaching dislocated and underserved areas of all four countries.
- provide users the possibility of learning through using mobile technologies as well as printed, audio and digital publications.
