Description:
The Community Mothers Programme is facilitated by the Northern Area Health Board, the East Coast Area Health Board and the South Western Area Health Board. Its aim is to develop the ski lls of parents of young children and build their self-development with the focus on health care, nutritional improvement and overall child development. It is a parent support programme in which friendly local women know as Community Mothers carry out monthly structured visits to first-time and second-time parents by appoimment during the baby's first two years, providing empathy and information in a non-directive way to foster parenting skills and the parents' self-esteem . The parents become empowered to believe in their own capabilities and skills for parenting without being dependent on professionals. The Family Development Nurses who facilitate the Programme have moved away from the biological model of health care, working for people, to a model which involves working with people, In fact the model is one of parent enablement and empowerment which encourages parents to learn to cope with difficulties they encounter in bringing up their children and to find their own solution to their problems.
