$530 for prenatal and delivery, and $200 to meet lab deductible (covered 100% after that). We have regence. 

For the first pregnancy, I was covered under premera and ended up with $900ish in labs, but prenatal and delivery was only $280.

My youngest was over $40,000. 

He was born at 29 weeks, and required specialized care. My insurance only paid 80% after my $7500 family deductible.

I think for a healthy pregnancy, and uncomplicated birth the average price ranges somewhere in 10,000 dollars…without insurance.

I know I have paid a pretty penny so far. Fertility treatments came out of pocket for me, and NOT counting those – I have paid about 1300 dollars in the last couple months. We are so happy to have the chance to be parents though – we say “it aint no thang” because we ended up so lucky so far.

Well my little boy was 7 weeks early. Put it this way, his stay in the NICU without insurance we could have bought a house with how much it costs.  But with insurance we had to pay only $178.00 of it.  My whole insurance if remember right probably total costs and that includes the his stay in the NICU was probably about $3,000

Can’t speak for the whole pregnancy as I haven’t had the baby yet, but I got a $1300 lab bill last month. That was fun. But DH’s employer reimburses 75% and the rest was paid for using our FSA.

There hasn’t been a copay for any of my prenatal visits or charges for ultrasounds. Just stupid lab work.

@iheartnerds:   The lab work has def been the huge spendy factor here too! eek.

 

@Sanola831:   Thanks! We are just thrilled. It is so good to get more information and try to be prepared. I think we all want to be the best we can and do the most for our kids! It sounds like your insurance will after the deductible be a big help so hopefully you wont find it too bad.

$16 copay per visit so far. Currently 20 weeks and no surprise bills. But I work for my state so my insurance is pretty good.
