Many of the individual health insurance policies offered in California do not include maternity coverage. This means that if you have a baby – plannned or unplanned – you will pay for all of the expenses.

Normal child delivery and pre and post delivery medical costs could range from $5,000 to $10,000. Complications of pregnancy can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. So be careful if you don’t have maternity coverage.
