The Health Minister has asked maternity hospitals and units to show why they're not allowing partners into scans.
Hospitals are now being contacted to make sure they're letting loved ones into the 20-week scan at a minimum.
There's growing frustration and upset among many pregnant women who are being forced to go through scans and the early stages of labour on their own.
Yesterday protests took place at 4 maternity hospitals calling for an easing of restrictions.
Stephen Donnelly and Taoiseach Micheál Martin both said that restrictions should be lifted on all hospitals unless there is a local outbreak of Covid.
