Sir: Robert Forman is right to suggest that women should be able to exercise their choice in pregnancy care and support but wrong in his claim that it is not available via medical insurance (letter, 7 March).

PPP Healthcare does make provision for normal pregnancy in some of its private health care plans. Depending on the product selected, a woman can claim for all eligible antenatal and postnatal consultations, ultrasound scans and any diagnostic tests the consultant requests after an initial qualifying period.
