Maternity and Infant Scheme Every woman who is pregnant and ordinarily resident in Ireland is entitled to maternity care under the Maternity and Infant Scheme. Ordinarily resident means you are living here, or you intend to remain living here for at least one year. Ireland provides very high-quality Maternity care, to both mothers and infants. Once approved by the HSE, women are entitled to free antenatal and postnatal care with the doctors in our surgery. You are not required to have a medical card to avail of this service. On your first pregnancy the GP provides an initial examination, if possible before 12 weeks, and a further 5 examinations during the pregnancy, which are alternated with visits to the maternity unit/hospital. These visits to the GP are free of charge. The schedule of visits may be changed by your GP and/or hospital obstetrician, depending on your individual situation. For subsequent pregnancies, you will have an initial examination and a further 6 examinations. If you have a significant pregnancy-related illness, e.g. diabetes or hypertension, you may have up to 5 additional visits to the GP. Do you have a question?
