Former employer may have kept me on their insurance plan for longer than intended--are there any repercussions for me?

I got laid off at the very end of my pregnancy. My former employer (specifically, the CFO) promised to keep me on the health plan until about two weeks after my due date. They said not to worry about my coverage until I got my COBRA letter. Three months after my due date, I'm still covered, no letter in sight. I've been in touch with HR to add baby to my plan with no trouble or mention of coverage arrangements.
Moral and ethical obligations aside, can this potential oversight on their part potentially fall on me?
