I don't know what to do... My job didn't provide health insurance so I was on a payment plan with my doctors. I made too much money for state assistance insurance at the time. I was laid off 2 months ago and denied unemployment. I had no choice but to stop going to my prenatal appointments because I could not afford it. I stopped going when I was laid off (January). Now my due date WAS March 21, I don't know what to do. I tried to just be as healthy as possible, and keep up with my prenatal vitamins, etc.

What should I do? Help? I hate that I am in such a terrible place in life right now. I have never had so much go wrong with such horrible timing.

There should be a clinic attatched to a hospital. If not find out where one is by contacting social services.

Also, did you fight the unemployment? Sometimes you have to. If you are not working you should have applied for state care at the time. If you go into labor and have your baby, get an apt with social services and they will cover the birth. Just dont waste another min.

best wishes

You are also only 3 days overdue!! A pregnancy can range from 37 to 42 weeks. I know as uncomfortable it is, it is worth it to just hang in there the baby may need some more time to bake. Most don't induce until closer to 42 weeks unless there is concern shown by u/s, NST, BP, etc.

Aside from that I'd go back and apply for state health assistance. If you are laid off and have no income - you should qualify. I agree, try unemployement again - see why they wouldn't qualify you. Unless you worked for a non-profit, your employeer should have paid into unemployement.

you should look into a clinic. They can't deny you health care.

You can get vitamins over the coutner that aren't that expensive.

Good Luck
