Where do I get Hospital cover for my baby's delivery?
I'm 22 years old and married, I'm also 3 months pregnant with no medical aid. None of the medical aid institutes that I have contacted will help me with the delivery costs as I'm already pregnant. According to what I've learnt you have to be a member for more than three months before you get pregnant. I live in Gauteng, South Africa. Where can I get sufficient cover for the delivery of my baby?
