Preparing for your baby’s arrival is one of the most exciting times in life. Pregnancy insurance provides coverage for congenital child conditions and pregnancy complications. This is why it is crucial to understand the essential details about an insurance policy before purchasing the plan.
ReadyMummy is a 3-year insurance plan that covers expectant mothers from an early 13 weeks of pregnancy and the coverage takes place until the policy ends (3 years).
ReadyMummy takes coverage of both your physical and mental wellbeing. Statistics indicate that depression affects an approximate of 10 to 15 percent of women after pregnancy. In this case, Manulife’s maternity plan is striving to provide a more holistic protection for the mother and baby before and after birth.
