Thankfully we have really good insurance and there are more discounts at the hospital if we prepay.
You should be able to start a payment plan at the hospital. Either that or, open a savings account and start adding into it and you can always make payment arrangements after the baby comes too.
BTW Pregnancy is not considered a pre-existing condition, I've had to switch insurance companies a few times during pregnancy.
You can also buy maternity insurance but check them out before buying. No matter what, you still need to see a Dr for regular prenatal appointments.
