I also delivered in Sept and got my portion of the bill what insurance payed.  Mine was $14,000 something for 2 days.  Luckily insurance payed almost all of it. 

Now I am scared to see what my son’s bill will be, he had to stay in the NICU unit for almost a month due to he was 7 weeks early. 

And I am in the metro area of Minneapolis, MN area

We have not had children yet, but that sounds normal to me- at least considering I had my appendix out this year and it was $36,000!  Yip.  :/

Wow! I live in the DC area but my total was less than 7k, and about $650 for my son.  I had a low risk vaginal delivery with epidural & pitocin and stayed for 2 days, he didn’t need anything beyond the standard shots/tests.

@eurekaanchovies: We were told that before insurance it would cost about 22k for a NORMAL vaginal delivery with no drugs or c-section (in the seattle area). So yes, I think that is normal!

Thank goodness that with our insurance we will pay less than 1k.

Wow that seems so expensive.  I had a c-section and it was around $6000.  DD’s bill was about $800.  Thankfully insurance pays for it.  I would be flabbergasted if my bill was that expensive.

Our hospital bill for a normal vaginal delivery and about 36 hour hospital stay was 20k; the epidural (the only med/intervention I had) was another 2k.  And I live in the middle of nowhere, lol!

I’m also in NYC. I had a csection (no induction or labor first) with 4 nights in the hospital and my bill was over 50k. We owed less than 1k with insurance.

Canada’s health care isn’t exactly “free”, it’s just something everyone contributes to. Canadian doctors and hospitals still cost money.

My delivery might cost $25K+ but with my health insurance my max out of pocket will be $1000.
