Most medical aids exclude cover for pregnancy if you fall pregnant in the first year.

If they don''t cover you, then try and find a good midwife. You will still have two or three appointments with a gynae for necessary scans and so on, but the mid wife will see you every month at a far cheaper rate, and you are more likely to have a natural birth (which you can do in a hospital) and her fees will be a lot cheaper.
