Powder used in antenatal clinics (4)


I believe the answer is:


'powder' is the definition.
(talcing is a kind of powdering)

'in antenatal clinics' is the wordplay.
'in' says the answer is hidden in the clue.
'TALC' is hidden within 'antenatal clinics'.

'used' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for talc that I've seen before include "Bathroom dusting powder" , "Toilet powder - mica" , "Perfumed drying powder" , "I may dust" , "Magnesium silicate powder" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
