Pregnant or had a baby in the past 12 months

If you’re pregnant or have given birth in the last 12 months, you are entitled to:

  • free NHS dental treatment
  • free NHS prescriptions, if you have a valid maternity exemption certificate

Speak to your midwife, doctor or health visitor and they will apply for a maternity exemption certificate on your behalf. You cannot apply for a certificate yourself.
