Experts want health insurers to cover cost of postnatal home service

ABU DHABI // Experts are calling for health insurers to cover a home midwifery service for mothers and newborns in an effort to prevent post-natal problems.

The service would monitor mother and baby and provide psychosocial backup and feeding support.

A nursing company in the capital has a division that takes care of post-natal issues but none of its services are yet covered by insurance.
