Leaving Switzerland while pregnant

Hello,
Could anybody help me please.
I am from EU state and I have been working in Switzerland (permit B) since February 2016 till October 2018. At the end of October 2018 I have quit my job because I wanted to go back to live and work in my country of origin. I have quit my apartement, sign out of gemeinde and swiss isurance etc. at the end of October. But straight away after this I have find out that I am pregnant (probably since middle of September). My plan was to start working immediately in my country so thatís why I didnít register at RAV in Switzerland but now with pregnancy my situation has changed a bit..
So now I am back in my country, but unemployed and I will probably get no unemployment benefits here (because I didnít work here for few years) and as well no maternity leave money..
Does anybody know if I can get any support (money) from Switzerland even that I am already deregistered? I was employed when I got pregnant - does this make any difference or not at all please?
I would appreciate ANY help.
Thanks a lot!
Best Regards

Your work in CH should entitle you to local unemployment benefits, it works the other way round.

What fatmanfilms says

Depending on the system in your country, you should register as unemployed where you live now and you will be entitled to unemployment benefits due to your work in CH. This is the agreement between the EU and CH. I guess you are even entitled to paid maternity leave and vacation according to the law of your country, but you should ask.

You probably have to bring documentation that you have been insured in CH and for how long.
