  • With my last, I packed a baggie full of changeand put it in my hospital bag..I think it was close to $20 in change...just so that my dh could go back and forth to the vending machines if he wanted or if my son wanted something while he was up there. I didnt' have to worry about trying to get change while I was there. I don't know how much was spent but all of it wasn't spent.

  • None and None...

    Everything we needed was provided by the hospital & Parking is free for the couple delivering.

  • None. They provide your food and your spouses meals if they are there with you. At least my hospital did. And they had a snack room available too, no cost. If you want any pictures done there you would have to pay for those. But my mom is a photographer so she did the birth pictures.

  • Nothing. I went in for a routine stress test and left 5 days later with a baby.

  • none, my parents brought me snacks and my husband went out to get food for himself, really the only time he actually drove himself around was when i was in the hospital having our kids :P lol he hates to drive!
