    Hi Jess, if you go through the public system every thing including your ultrasounds are free. I have private insurance for pregnancy and was a private patient in a public hospital and cannot speak highly enough of the system. Most of the complaints I hear about are from private hospitals. Call your local women's and children's hospital and they will tell you how to get booked in. Good luck, hope your pregnancy goes well.
