Maternity exemption

Pregnant women and those who have had a baby in the last 12 months get free:

  • NHS prescriptions - but only if you have a valid maternity exemption certificate
  • NHS dental treatment if, when you are accepted for a course of treatment, you are pregnant or have had a baby in the previous 12 months.

We are responsible for issuing maternity exemption certificates, on behalf of the Department of Health, to women in England who are pregnant or have had a baby in the last 12 months.
