No, there is no tax credit for pregnancy.     When your child is born and you prepare a tax return for 2021 NEXT YEAR you can claim your child as a dependent on your tax return.

Thanks, @xmasbaby0 

Usually, the last date to file tax is 15 April, but my child expected date of birth is in the first week of June. 
in this case, can I take a tax credit or not?

you can not take a tax credit until the year the baby is born.   


The child requires a social security number and that can't be issued without a birth date ; and this has nothing to do with the tax date of April 15. 


It has to do with the calendar year.  Children born after 12/31/20 cannot be claimed on the 2020 tax return. 


Children born in 2021 can be claimed on their parents 2021 tax return which is due on April 15, 2022. 


make sense?
