WithOUT insurance? A lot. Probably close to $10,000 total.
It looks something like this:
Prenatal appointments- $100-$200 per visit (just for the doctor's fees) 15-20 visits= $1500-$4000
Lab Work and fees- $200
Ultrasound- $300-$1000
Birth- vaginal- $2,000-$5,000
Birth- c-section- $3,000-$8,000

This doesn't include if there is a problem where additonal medical care is needed, or if the hospital stay is longer.

I found this interesting site-http://www.costhelper.com/cost/child/baby-delivery.html

Says the Northeast is the most expensive area to deliver a baby.

9-15K for a regular delivery (vaginal). C-section up to 25K!

Baby also gets a bill- $1,500-4,000 for a healthy baby.

Kids come into this world with a hefty price tag

I had 2 babies born in central NJ.

1st: c-section after laboring. Insurance paid $27,000 to the hospital and $2500 to the OB. OB actually charged about $5000 and hospital probably charged around $40,000 (insurance negotiates much lower rates). No complications, no NICU, health me and healthy baby. That cost included hospital stay, epidural, pitocin, stadol, pediatrician, follow up, anethesiologist, operating room staff, etc. 4 day stay.

2nd: I have the bill from the hospital and it was $8500 for a completely drug free vaginal birth. I had 2 motrin afterwards and that was is. 24 hours stay following delivery. Midwives charged around $6000 for prenatal care and delivery.

Default Midwife VBAC Provider

digi21: I saw that you had a VBAC with a Midwife in central NJ. I'm currently looking for a VBAC Friendly provider to deliver my 2nd baby. I'm not yet pregnant, but plan to TTC in the next couple of months and want to have a provider ready for that delivery. If you don't mind, can you please provide me with the name of the Midwife that you used? My heart is set on having a VBAC and I know it's essential to find a provider that supports this. Many thanks for your help in advanced.

Sure. I used Pam and Louise of Midwifery Care Associates in Pennington. They attend VBACs at Capital Health Hospital in Trenton and have about a 95% VBAC success rate. I traveled an hour to see them and it was completely worth it. If they aren't close enough, I know of a number other VBAC supportive providers in NJ. Just let me know what area/hospitals you are near. It's definitely worth using a provider that actually supports VBAC rather than someone who will just "tolerate" an attempt or try to talk you out of it last minute.
