Ok so I have been trying to research this subject for quite sometime and can not find the answers hopefully one of you women can reach out. I am living in MA and found out I was pregnant shortly after getting laid off and I am concerned that I will lose my benefits when I give birth because technically you are not available for work which that I understand but can I reopen the claim when my doctor says it is ok for me to go back to work and look for work? I talked to one person over the phone who said if you are not eligible for work your benefits are cut no if ands or buts and you are done....but it just sounds awful I am having a newborn! and it hasnt been exactly easy to find a job with this obviously pregnant look I have going on. Please help if you can find any info! there must be something out there I just don't know where to look and I am overwhelmed.
