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 prior to conception.

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.

See Classic/Basic Guidelines: Section IX for more information on maternity sharing.

Frequently Asked Maternity Questions

Do I have to add a second member prior to conception in order to share my maternity need?

Prior to conception you must add a second person to your membership, or sign up for Maternity Care Sharing as a One‑Person membership, agreeing to pay the equivalent of a Two-Person share amount.

Can I add my unborn child as the second family member?

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.

What if I decide not to add a second family member?

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.
