Hi, can a Canadian give birth in the US? I have horror stories about every single hospital in Quebec and was considering going to Ontario (Ottawa) or somewhere close in the US. The only thing that I need to find out about is the medical coverage. In quebec, I have the Medicare and my private insurance. In Ontario, I guess somehow Medicare kicks in and the health insurance works in the rest of Canada. However, what happens if I give birth in the US? Since you gave birth there, would you know by any chance?

I know this reply is too late, but I just wanted to share my experience at Lasalle Hospital. I had a terrible experience at that hospital and I think it was due to the fact that I don't speak French. I chose to birth there because several of my husband's coworkers had recently had children there including his boss and they thought it was excellent (they are all francophone). The nurses and doctors speak English and French, but they didn't want to spend the time explaining things to me in English. For many it just had to do with them not being able to, and for others there was just attitude. Only when my husband spoke to them in French, did the nurses take the time to explain my care or the baby's care in full, otherwise I just received information in bits and pieces. I was really confused about several things such as why I needed a c-section, what I had to do for my daughter because she had low blood sugar, its implications, breastfeeding issues and my medications.


Also, I can understand French but I can't speak as well. In the operating room I heard some comments about me. I couldn't wait to leave. Unfortunately I had a c-section so I had to stay longer than most.


This hospital may be the "newer" hospitals in montreal, but it definitely didn't look that way to me. I had a horrible experience. I would never go back there again.
