HSE aiming to allow partners attend pregnancy scans from next week

 

The HSE says its aiming to allow partners of pregnant people attend scans from next week.

It's re-classifying them as 'essential companions' for the foetal anomaly check.

That is typically offered to women around 20 weeks into pregnancy.

If a case of Covid-19 is identified in a maternity facility, restrictions on visits could be re-implemented, however.
