Expiation for the missed fast of the pregnant woman

Question:

If a sister was pregnant and her fasting in the month of Ramadan was limited due to her state and she was unable to make up the fast before the next Ramadan, she would have to provide food to one needy person. My question: Is it provided from her money (she doesn’t work for a living but has some money in a personal account) as it was her fast that wasn’t completed? Or is it from her husband’s money as he is considered the provider of the family?
 
Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger, may Allah exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.
 
If this woman broke the fast fearing for her fetus or her child then she has to feed one needy person for each day she missed fasting and it is the husband who should pay for that.  She also has to make up the days she missed as soon as she is able to.
However, if she broke the fast fearing for herself, then she does not have to feed a needy person in expiation, but she has to make up the days she missed.
This is so, only if she made up the days before the following Ramadan arrived or did not neglect to do so but was unable to do that.  Otherwise she should make up the missed days and also expiate by feeding a needy person for each missed day.
Allah Knows best.
