I never knew that when you are pregnant, you are entitled to receive free NHS prescriptions in the UK!
That said, there’s no reason why I would know, I've never been pregnant before!
It was on one of my trips to my GP when I was suffering with my morning sickness that I was told that if I filled in a form at reception, that I would received a NHS Maternity Exemption Certificate in the post which I could use for the duration of my pregnancy and up until the baby is 1 year old!
|You'll receive one of these in the post. I've removed my Certificate Number for privacy reasons!|
Granted, that won’t be much use until after the baby is born as I hope to not need any prescription medication in my pregnancy, but for a year after is brilliant!
Yes, it’s the little things for me, but I never knew pregnant women were entitled to this, so in case you didn't either, now you do!
