    Where I live the poor are able to apply for Medicaid and a few other programs that provide medical access to children. But it all depends on where this is happening.

    Which country? US? US citizens with very low income might be eligible for state Medicaid (MediCal in Calif.). Medicaid covers essential routine & emergency health care. However, not all doctors would accept Medicaid patients. There are also free or sliding-scale clinics for routine healthcare - amount of payment for services depends on your income. 

    Other countries have different systems. A few cover all citizens through socialized medical care provided through taxes (which is why their taxes are so high). Most are pay as you go - you get (or not) what you pay for.

    But do consider that if you cannot provide essentials for a baby/child, you shouldn't be having one. It's a terribly cruel form of child abuse to bring a child into the world when you cannot or will not provide essentials like healthcare for it.
