Once you have confirmed the news, your emotions, from elation to mild shock, will take a bit to settle. Then it’s time to get organized and take care of your pregnancy. First, contact your insurance provider to check if they cover the costs of carrying a pregnancy to term. In many cases, there may be a waiting period before they pay for maternity care. If this applies to you, you need some financial resources on the side.
