    Travel Insurance covering Maternity in US

    I'm 20 weeks pregnant and will be travelling to US for 2 weeks. Our HK insurance doesn't cover expenses in US. Would anyone know of any travel insurance (or other short term insurance) we can take that covers maternity expenses in case of emergency in US? I asked and HSBC travel insurance excludes all maternity related expenses, e.g. if I fell down the stairs and need to check up on fetus it's not covered.
    Just want an insurance coz medical expenses in US is extremely high! Appreciate any leads. thx.

    Do you have medical insurance here? It's worth checking if you do as my policy here covers emergency in the US (i.e. life threatening stuff) but not routine procedures there.

    Alternatively, ask kwiksure, our contact there is Barney and he's really helpful and knows his stuff.
