    maternity covers and waiting periods

    I would like to get pregnant asap as I'm quickly getting older. I have been trying to navigate the different insurance providers web pages, but really, it is beyond rocket science. So of anyone can help me I would be eternally grateful:

    - Waiting period is during which I cannot get pregnant, ie before the maternity insurance kicks in?
    - Or does it means, If I do get pregnant during the waiting period, we will have to pay for the first few appointments but after the waiting period, everything will be covered?
    -What is the best provider? What type of coverage should I be looking for?
    - How much should I expect to pay each month for my premium?

    Many thanks for your help.

    You could always try calling an insurance broker such as Kwiksure - they can give you a side by side comparison of some of the plans. Better than you calling each company individually!!

    Also have a look at Healthcare International. Found them reasonable and maternity coverage is US$25k.
