Where i work, it is almost all childbearing-age women(social work), and our premiums are SKY HIGH because maternity costs are ridiculous, and thats' where the vast majority of our money goes!!!

I so hate this, especially since like 90% of women don't even need an OB or a really PISSES me off that my ins premiums are ridiculous because the ins company has to shell out close to $20grand a pop for C/Sections, at least 80% of which are totally UNEEDED. And then they won't cover my $2000 for the entire pregnancy, prenatals, birth and postpartum visits that my homebirth midwife chanrges!

Peeved. Irked.
