A Hospital Charged a Couple $40 to Hold Their Baby After He Was Born

baby2-jnd

It’s really amazing how much of an out-of-control beast our healthcare system has become after decades and decades of running totally unchecked.

A couple in Utah had a baby a few weeks ago, and the guy just posted a copy of their hospital bill on Reddit . . . that showed a $39.35 charge for, quote, “skin to skin after C-sec.”

In other words, they were charged 40 bucks to hold their son after he was born.

How can the hospital possibly think that’s a reasonable charge?

A labor and delivery nurse posted a response to explain it: When a baby is born with a c-section in the operating room and the parents hold them right away, an extra nurse has to stay and monitor the baby to make sure they’re okay.

And while that may be true, the consensus online is that it’s still a ridiculous thing to see on a hospital bill.
