Another Safer Pregnancy Project, the charity funds Wellbeing Wallets, from Mama Academy to expecting mums! The wallets are a robust plastic zip-lock pouch in which mums can keep their handheld antenatal notes, which they are expected to keep with them as their pregnancy progresses. The wallets ensure the notes are kept protected, but they are also colourfully printed with important advice regarding mum’s health, and that of her baby. This ensures that key messages such as monitoring babies’ movements become second nature to the woman as she carries the wallet with her.
We provide 1,000 wallets in Jersey annually, 5,000 to date. These were trialled in 15 NHS Health Trusts and showed a reduction in stillbirths across the board and are now in 50% of NHS Trusts.
