The latest numbers are out revealing just how much it costs to have a baby in the hospital -- just including pregnancy and labor and delivery. In about nine months' time, you can rack up a bill of $21,000 for having a single baby. If it's twins, it's more than double, with the price ballooning to $105,000. Triplets or more ... $400,000. Money, money, money. Business is booming at hospitals, right? And the more procedures they "have" to perform and the more drugs you "need," the more money they make.
If you compare these prices with how much a home birth costs, you may realize how some hospitals are really sticking it to us.
