Evaluation Report: Pregnancy and Parenting Services

Published online: 
08 February 2022

In 2016, the Ministry of Health (MOH) funded three District Health Boards (DHBs) to deliver Pregnancy and Parenting Services (PPS) with the aim of reducing harm and improving the wellbeing of children.

PPS are intensive, assertive outreach case co-ordination services modelled on an approach developed by Waitematā DHB. They aim to improve outcomes for children by addressing the needs of parents and working to strengthen the family environment. PPS are for parents of children under three years old and pregnant women who are experiencing problems with alcohol and other drugs and are poorly connected to health and social services.
