  • So...this is going to sound weird but do any other Canadian bumpies kinda feel bad about talking about some of the benefits we have in Canada?  I mean I was well aware of our American friends' lack of public healthcare but before joining TB I didn't realize they get so little maternity leave!  Or the fact that many can't have a hospital delivery with a midwife?  I kinda feel guilty sometimes!

  • Good luck ttc!:) 

    It actually came up in my bmb.. Someone without benefits got pretty bitchy with someone who had mat leave because she mentioned she was worried about the financial side of having a baby. I don't think that's fair at all, it's not like we should feel guilty as we pay a lot in taxes and deductions. 

    I hadn't realised until I came on this board how lucky we are though, I can't imagine not having maternity leave and having to go back to work wks after having a baby. I've also heard a lot of women talk about saving up for the delivery medical costs, it makes me realise how lucky we are to have ohip!

    Wow yah totally not fair. Having a baby is still expensive here and things cost so much more here!  Plus 1 yr parental leave is great but still means 1 yr at less than 100% of family income. Good to know it's a potential landmine though. I'll keep that in mind. We are so lucky though ☺
