There are many free and low-cost programs for pregnant moms in Maryland. Prenatal care is important to the health of your child.  

If you don’t have health insurance, you may qualify for help from Medicaid while pregnant and for two months after your baby is born. Maryland Children’s Health Insurance Program (MCHP) also supports eligible pregnant women of any age and children up to age 19, who are not eligible for Medicaid.  

Call the Help Line for Pregnant Women at 1-800-456-8900 to find the right health care for your situation.  

If you need a health insurance, you can apply through Maryland Health Connection 

The American Academy of Pediatrics has more pregnancy related information, and support for children of all ages. 

If you’ll be going back to work after your child is born, you can make plans for day care while pregnant. Learn more about your options and help paying for child care.  

You can also call 2-1-1 for support with other needs, or search for related resources.
