It costs about $1200 out of pocket with my insurance (which is through my state bc I’m a teacher). It used to be completely free until all the major changes that have happened to insurance in the US over the past few years,now we get to make higher payments for everything)

I paid my $400 deductible and maybe another $100-$200 for random stuff. I can’t complain though because my total bill was $15,000+. My daughter was put on my husband’s insurance when she was born because I was a “dependent” on my parents. We had to pay $900 of her $1700 bill.

$0.  I work for a hospital and I have their insurance so I never spent a cent on prenatal appointments or the delivery (which was a c-section).

It cost me $36 after insurance and I’m 85% sure that was for food and painkillers. I had a standard natural birth with an epidural. Dear Daughter came 26 days early so while we didn’t have any nicu stays, she did have to get her sugar tested before she ate for 24 hours. We also had to stay 1 extra day to make sure she was continuing to put on weight and latch correctly. The total was around $21k, with $15k being just the delivery. No charges for any of our appointments/meds (even the extra ones because we had a feeling she was coming!). We have tricare.
