Depends on your location and if you have insurance or not.

Last I checked it ranged from 8,000 to 17,000. But that depends on location and if you require anesthesia.

There are some articles on Google that might help you save by doing things like bringing your own food and drink and diapers and such.

My first baby was born in a hospital 3 years ago. It was a vaginal delivery with no complications, we went home the next morning and it was $12K. I did have an epidural and that was like $2,500 and they charged me $600 for walking through the emergency room door because it was 2am. So annoying. That is not including prenatal care and we denied a lot of stuff for my son (such as circumcision) so I don't know how much all that costs. Maybe the hospital could give you an estimate?

Oh my goodness! That is so expensive. Here in new zealand all medical care is absolutely free.  It seems unethical to charge someone to give birth!

That is insane, in Canada I had a csection, was in the hospital for 4 days and the only thing I paid for was my 14 dollar constipation meds.
