According to CTV, Blue Cross wrote the couple a letter stating that they were not eligible for coverage because Huculak had been “treated for a high-risk pregnancy in the six months prior to departure.” But the mom said she did not have a high-risk pregnancy, only a bladder infection which led to bleeding. Huculak’s doctor in Saskatchewan wrote to Blue Cross to explain that the bladder infection did not cause her early labor, but the insurance company still denied coverage.

Huculak told The Toronto Sun that she never would have traveled if she had any reason to believe there were medical risks. “Anybody in their right mind doesn’t risk their life, their unborn baby’s life to go on a vacation.”
