What is covered under Maternity Health Insurance?

Maternity insurance coverage

Maternity insurance cover is a type of health insurance plan that covers medical expenses related to pregnancy like the cost of delivery, hospitalisation, pre-and post-natal care, medical tests, medicines, and newborn baby expenses.
