In Abu Dhabi, you can get free mother and child checks this month


If you are a new mother in Abu Dhabi or are expecting a baby soon, you can benefit from free prenatal and antenatal checkups during the month of August to ensure your health and the health of your child.

Every year in August, the Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre (ADPHC) hosts a programme called “Maternal and Child Health” that gives mothers the chance to visit any of the participating maternity and children’s hospitals in Abu Dhabi.

Through preventive and evidence-based methods, the programme aims to improve the possibilities accessible to them and the health of women, newborns, children, and families.

There are three screening programmes offered to women and kids:

1. Antenatal screenings
