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!
