A Canadian woman who thought she was taking a simple vacation with her husband is now facing a nearly $1 million surprise medical bill.

Jennifer Huculak and her husband, who live in Sasketchewan, Canada, were on vacation in Hawaii in 2017 when Huculak, who was pregnant at the time, unexpectedly gave birth nine weeks early. She stayed on bed rest in the hospital for six weeks and her child, born premature, was placed in intensive care for two months.

Huculak and her now 11-month-old baby are now healthy and back at home in Canada. But the family received an unpleasant surprise after returning home: their bill for their care at the Hawaiian hospital totaled $950,000.
