Certainly there are but your present condition would be exluded.

You can still apply even if you are already pregnant. Your pregnancy and maternity leave will not be covered, but you will have income replacement in case of accidents and illnesses. Keep the policy, and future pregnancies and maternity leaves will be covered.
