Under the initiative, dubbed “Pregnancy+" and overwhelmingly supported by the lower house of Poland’s parliament on Thursday, women will be eligible for free pharmaceuticals to treat pregnancy-related conditions.

Prescriptions for such medication will be issued by gynecologists as well as general practitioners providing care as part of the public health system.

A deputy health minister has said the new programme is part of the government’s drive to create family-friendly policies.

The new regulations are expected to take effect on July 1, with the cost to public coffers estimated at PLN 11 million (EUR 2.4 million, USD 2.6 million) this year, growing to PLN 24 million in 2021 and then continuing to increase at a rate of 10 percent annually, Poland’s PAP news agency reported.

The country's MPs voted 447-5 to approve the new measure.

The legislation now goes to the Senate, the upper house of Poland’s parliament, for further debate.
