Message length 300 characters recommended

The hospital fees for delivering a baby can greatly vary.

I had a quick vaginal birth, no epidural, no pain medications, no complications and the bill was around $7,000.

The length of labor and delivery, medication used, number of doctors involved and many other factors can change the cost.


For a home birth we were told it would be around $4k out of pocket before 37 weeks our insurance wouldn't cover it.. for the hospital birth, we were told it would only be $6k with the midwife.. We got a bill for $14k. We disputed $1k of it because of pitocin shot that went against a written birth plan..still waiting to hear about financial aid.
