[09 NOV 98] COVENTRY HEALTH AUTHORITY PRESS RELEASE
PALS In Pregnancy Phone Line

A free phone line to link to a service which provides information and support for pregnant women will be launched on Tuesday 17 November 1998, by Coventry Health Authority. This is a development of the PALS In Pregnancy project which offers social support to vulnerable pregnant women living in disadvantaged circumstances.

Pals are specially trained women who know what it’s like to be pregnant and face life difficulties. The role of the Pal is to act as a special friend to pregnant women, to listen, not judge and provide support. This scheme is particularly aimed at women who live in Canley, Stoke Aldermoor, Willenhall, Hillfields, Wood End and Foleshill.

Sue Kingswell, Health Promotion Manager says

"We are excited about this new development which provides a personalised first contact for pregnant women who want to know how Pals In Pregnancy might be able to help them."

There will be a Pal available for pregnant women to speak to directly on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 12.00 and 2.00pm. At other times an answerphone will be in operation. Alternatively, pregnant women can access Pals via her community midwife, GP or Health visitor, who are all supportive of the scheme and this week are receiving details of the free phone line.
