Free Antenatal care

We provide shared antenatal care with your obstetrician. Routine checks in pregnancy include baby heart checks, assessment of size and position of the baby, blood pressure and urine testing.

All maternity visits are free of charge under the Maternity and Infant Scheme. This Scheme includes between 6 and 7 antenatal visits during your pregnancy, while also encompassing a 2 week check for your baby and a six week check for you and your baby.

Below a schedule of antenatal visits is outlined for you information.
