Maternity Care Sharing

Maternity needs are shareable as long as the member chooses one of the following options:

Option 1

Sign up for a Two-Person or Multi-Person Membership. The membership includes the mother and a second individual, either her husband or a child. All participants must be in the same membership program. If you choose a One-Person membership at this time, the second member must be added at least 300 days before the estimated due date.

Option 2

Sign up for One-Person Maternity Care Sharing. We understand that not everyone will be able to add a second family member to their membership. In a family where only one person is eligible for membership, that family can pay the equivalent of a Two‑Person share amount each month to be eligible for maternity care sharing as a One‑Person membership.

Frequently Asked Maternity Questions

No. Although we consider the unborn child a part of the family, we need a date of birth in order to add someone to the membership.

Members who do not add a second family member or sign up for Maternity Care Sharing will not be able to have their maternity needs shared. However, maternity expenses may be submitted as a Special Prayer Need.

When the estimated due date is less than 300 days from a qualifying membership (Two-Person membership or the equivalent), maternity needs are not shareable. However, maternity expenses may be submitted as a Special Prayer Need.
