I Had To Pay $40 To Hold My Baby After He Was Born
October 4, 2016
This hospital actually charged a new mother $39.35 for "skin to skin" after her C-section.
The photo of the bill was posted by the father on Reddit, and although the charge seems ridiculous, he found it humorous.
He wrote, "During the C-section the nurse asked my wife if she would like to do skin to skin after the baby was born. Which of course anyone would say yes too. We just noticed it in the bill today and had a laugh."
Comments are pouring in from thousands of people outside of the United States who cannot believe how much it costs to deliver a child in an American hospital.
"Boy...our system up here in Canada isn't perfect but damn. My son was born via c-section and it cost a total of $110. And that was only because we wanted a private room for 2 nights instead of semi."
"Everyone is complaining about the $39.35 to hold the baby, I'm over here wondering why you almost had to pay $13k to give birth?"
"Today I learned having a baby in the US costs more than a college education in Europe."
