    Do you mean income protection? Or health insurance?

    You need accident and illness cover for both yourself an your child if your worried about either of you becoming I'll and you not being able to work therefore not able to financially provide

    You would need to look at personal insurance if you wanted to cover yourself/your child.

    As far as im aware (don't quote me I could be completely wrong) but you wouldn't be able to get income protection as a SAHM since technically your not earning an income.

    You could look at other options like Critical Illness/Trauma cover for yourself and additional extended cover for children. Depending on the policy it pays out a lump sum on the insured events (certain cancers, medical treatment etc - each company will have different events that you are covered for).
