What is the cost of having a baby in the USA?

My husband is American and I am Canadian, and we want to have a baby together and were discussing if we should have it in the USA or Canada. I know it's free in Canada, but he really wants to be part of all the doctor visits and birth so we have agreed to have it in the USA. The baby will be living in Canada... show more My husband is American and I am Canadian, and we want to have a baby together and were discussing if we should have it in the USA or Canada.

The baby will be living in Canada for the majority of time though.
I was wondering if anyone could tell me the breakdown of costs for doctor visits/ultrasounds/delivery?
If there is an medical insurance I can purchase as a visitor to cover that?
