The high price of being pregant

You know, up here in Canada, I find a lot of people take our health care system for granted, and many people grumble about the cuts our government has made over the years for health costs they will cover. But I have several friends in the US and when I hear about the big bucks they have to pay for their health care, I just shake my head at the snivelling whiners I hear in my own country. Take for example the cost of being pregnant in the US and having that baby. It literally costs thousands of dollars when all is said and done, from lab, ultrasound (aka sonogram) and doctor costs to the hospital bill. Fortunately there is Maternity Health Insurance that can be purchased which will save the new parents about 60% of their maternity bill. You can find out more about the Maternity Card at
