Hi, so I should tell you that none of the companies in Canada will cover the delivery. The most they cover is up to 31 weeks of pregnancy.

You can get her coverage until she is 31 weeks pregnant.

No. They won't cover it, because it's not a risk..the woman will be giving birth for sure so they do not cover it,

The delivery no, absolutely none. She should still be covered in my opinion in case of complications or pre term delivery. If she delivers before the 31 weeks, they will cover it.

It should. But the problem is to get reimbursed by these companies. She will have to call her country of origin and deal with it then. She will need to pay the amount here first, since the hospitals can't know if the company is legit. It's definitely easier to purchase Canadian insurance.
