Mine only cost me $60.00 and that's only because I wanted a private room in the hospital for 3 nights

Depending on your insurance, as well as the type of delivery you have, it can be very expensive.

Holy shit.  Is that, like, normal for hospital births?

That's what they billed my insurance for...only thing "extra" was the epidural, almost 3k for that

I paid a 25.00 co-pay for each kid and that was it. I love great insurance! That was for 2-3 days in hospital after having Csections. Now the price the insurance paid ... OUCH!
