Just in case you didn’t know when you are pregnant I recommend you apply for your medical exemption certificate even if you don’t think you will need it.
I didn’t and after my blood tests I was given a prescription for vitamins I was lacking.
I knew I shouldn’t have to pay for them but when I went into the pharmacy they wanted my medical exemption certificate, which I didn’t have.
So I popped into the doctors surgery to claim my certioficate only to find out it would take some time to come through and that I could take my maternity note to the pharmacist as proof.
Off I went with my notes to Boots. As I presented them to the pharmacist he said that they would be no good.
‘You gotta be kidding me’ I said. ‘Clearly I am pregnant and exempt, what more proof do you need?’
Anyway after talking to the manager they finally gave me the prescription but warned me as no proof had been seen they may investigate my case!
Be my guest I thought since I knew I was entitled to my free prescription!
What a drama over nothing! So save yourself the effort and get your card sorted.
Last thought of the day…..make the most of the freebies and book a visit to your dentist.
As a pregnant lady you are entitled to free dental care!
Life doesn’t get any better!!!!
