  • i would talk to the health department. they helped me find a dr and find someone to help with the hospital bills after the baby was born. i was 15 so its been a few years. but the best thing you can do is just talk to someone about it.

  • You can apply for medi-cal benefits and they will cover you to go see a medi-cal approved docter. I am on it now and my docter is really great. You can try doing a search online to see where you can apply for medi-cal benefits.

  • States and hospitals vary but we didn't have insurance and the hospital should have a couple of options for you. check with them and your state

  • Thanks everyone! I went to my county Medical Assistance office and applied for benefits. I also got the name of a really great doctor. When I called to make the appointment, I told them that I might not have my coverage by the time I was going to be seen. They told me that it was no problem because Medical Assistance can be back dated when you are pregnant. I really appreciate all of your help!
