I get that you're Canadian and things work differently there but why would you TTC if you can't afford to provide for yourselves without assistance?

The only assistance we get is our rent is cheaper. This place is very well managed. . Compared to even the 1000 $ /m apt we lived before. We are living with in are means. Why would we pay 900-1000 $ for a slum.....

How is the health c care up there? Do you have to wait a million years to have a procedure or have a home birth? I'm anonymous because I know I sound ignorant, because I don't know anything but what I've heard

It takes a month or two for us. Im pretty sure you can have a home birth if you have a midwife. (Which are covered)

We are ttc but we can afforded it on our own. How sad to bring a child into the world when you really can't afford  one.
