Changing insurance just before due date

I find myself in a bit of an unusual situation with regards to insurance and giving birth, and I'm wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation. I'm due to give birth in late September. I'm on my husband's insurance, which has a high deductible, so the birth would cost us a chunk of money. He's switching jobs at the end of August, and the new job will provide better insurance. Problem is that we're currently with Kaiser, and the new job probably won't include Kaiser as an option (we're not certain yet, but it's unlikely). Since Kaiser doctors don't accept any other insurance, if we switch to a new insurance, I assume that I won't be able to stay with my current OB/GYN. I don't want to look for a new OB/GYN at 8 month pregnant. Am I basically stuck with the high-deductible plan as far as this birth is concerned? Has anyone been in a similar situation? Thanks in advance!
