Maternity exemption certificate
If you’re pregnant or have given birth in the last 12 months, you are entitled to the following with a maternity exemption certificate:
- free NHS dental treatment
- free NHS prescriptions, if you have a valid maternity exemption certificate
If you can afford to pay for your own prescriptions then you should continue to do so.
Personalised Care and Support Plan (PCSP)
Personal Care and Support Plans (PCSPs) help you to explore, understand and record your individual choices for pregnancy, birth and early parenthood. Every woman and family is different, with individual needs, which have an influence on care and preferences. Decisions regarding care should be made in partnership with your maternity team and those close to you (such as family and friends). PCSPs can adapt as your pregnancy progresses if needed.
Speak to your midwife about your digital Personalised Care and Support Plan.

The Migrant Women's Rights Service provides training and advice to midwives and frontline charity workers supporting migrant and asylum seeking women with income, housing and access to healthcare. They directly advise over 3,000 women annually and the online information is viewed over 1.6 million times each year. Their advice services are fully accredited and delivered by their in-house lawyers and advisers.
