  • you can go to the local health department and be seen by the gyn. there. they base the pay on your income and it is pretty cheap.

  • first things first, if you can not afford health insurance you can not afford a baby so PLEASE stop TTC until you can. dont purpously bring a baby into the world that you know you can not take care of
    babies need insurance too!!!!!!

  • so basically you want to have a baby on purose and want our tax $$ to support it?!
    NICE
    it is one thing that accidents happend and we make the best of a situation and get help for a short time and then get on our feet, but to do it on PURPOUSE?!?!?!
    do you have a freaking clue how much baby dr apts cost, diapers, bottles, formula, baby food, clothes that they outr grow QUICKLY ect
    get on your feet before trying to have a baby!!
