anyone know approx how much is c-section cost comparing to vaginal?

I'm planning on csection, my insurance will cover 90%, but it's still a lot of money if it cost around 20k or 30k. I live in state of NJ

  • OMG! And I thought things were expensive over here (Netherlands)! All I paid after the CS was a telephone bill around 18€, rest was coverd my insurance (90€ / month). I stayed 5 days in hospital.
    I don't know exactly what it costs to deliever a baby, but here they throw around with C-sections like confetti, because it's quicker and you get more babies done in less time.

  • I believe that you can contact the hospital and ask for the price of a c-section. I know that the local hospital were I live has it posted on there website. Maybe yours does too!
