For Gold members, maternity expenses are eligible for sharing after reaching $500 per pregnancy. Christian Healthcare Ministries will share qualifying bills for...

  • Pre-natal (including up to three ultrasounds, provided they are medically necessary)
  • Hospital delivery (including cesarean and multiple births)
  • Home births
  • Midwives (see Guideline R.11)
  • Complications (mother and baby)
  • Post-natal (up to six weeks)
  • One lactation consultant visit (if medically necessary; an itemized charge must appear on your bill or you must submit a note from your healthcare provider)

...with a maximum of $125,000 per pregnancy, provided the mother joined the Gold program at least 300 days before the doctor’s estimated due date. This generally means that members must wait at least 30 days—one month—after joining the ministry before becoming pregnant in order for that pregnancy and delivery to be eligible for sharing (Women who choose to switch from a lower level to Gold should allow 30 days for the change to take effect).

Two exciting advantages available for eligible Gold pregnancies:

  • The maximum per-pregnancy amount of assistance is unlimited with participation in the Brother’s Keeper program.
  • For mothers giving birth under CHM’s Gold program, any non-routine medical bills your baby incurs in the first three months after birth are eligible for sharing.

Maternity testimonies

Seven weeks early—watch Amanda’s story of premature birth and CHM members’ faithfulness

At 32 weeks, Amanda Burton’s water broke. With one thought racing through her mind—it’s too early!—she rushed to the hospital. After a week-long hospital stay and the baby’s 10 days in intensive care, the bills piled up around her. She was confident that her fellow CHM members would take care of her—and they did.

"God is faithful to provide": Run the Race scriptwriter shares CHM story

God gives everyone dreams, and the McEntires had two dreams: Jake wanted to see his script for Run the Race on the big screen and Charity wanted to be a stay-at-home mom. Would CHM enable them to pursue their dreams and share for the birth of their baby boy?

Roadside delivery: Born in a car

Missionaries' miracle baby

The Hill family, missionaries to Uganda, rejoiced as they learned they were pregnant. Concerned about complications, doctors encouraged them to remain in the US for the birth. See how the Hills experienced God's provision of $300,000 through CHM members.
