  • What state are you from? I'm sure your state provides some type of insurance!!!

  • Homebirth midwives are super cheap compared to doctors and hospitals. Around $4000 compared to $14,000. You might look in to that option.

  • Is there a pregnancy center in your city? I would start asking questions there, they may be able to help you find services.

  • Google "Community Health Centers" to find the master Web site of government-run health clinics that will see anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. You can drill down to find the location of a clinic near you.

  • Call your local Department of Job and Family services... I know here in Ohio that they won't deny a pregnant woman insurance!

  • Personally, I would rather pay for someone else to have a healthy baby and care than to leave them alone without anything. Heartless women, I swear.

    Double check Medicaid in your state - a lot of programs specifically for pregnant women that aren't as stringent on income. I had to use it during my first pregnancy because my insurance enrollment was after we found out about the pregnancy, and the insurance wouldn't cover any of it. I paid taxes and my insurance premiums, but the pregnancy was a pre-existing condition.

    If you can't get that or the program isn't available, really look into home birth with a midwife or a birth at a freestanding birth center. It is considerably cheaper (home birth ranges from 2000-5000, depending on the area, and many midwives will work out payment plans with you or allow you to barter services).

  • I agree with some of the others. I would check your local health department. If you don't have enough income they can't turn you down. Unless you were trying to go through a insurance company i know many won't cover pre existing 'conditions' or whatever. And remeber when the baby is ready to come he/she will.And hospitials can't turn you away for not having insurance. Trust me I have outstanding medicail bills. People shouldn't judge if they havn't been your shoes ingore them. Medicaid should cover you. and you're child. Good luck & GOD BLESS

    then you send her money.
    you are probably on it too.
    i work for my money and pay for my own medical insurance.
    if she cant afford to raise her own baby.. and cant keep her legs shut, she should give it to a family that can.
