Contrary to popular belief, delivering a baby via cesarean section isn’t as easy or as safe. As with all kinds of surgical procedures, a c-section has its risks and it only needs to be performed to a patient when necessary.
Not to mention that it is also typically more expensive compared with normal delivery!
So it’s pretty ridiculous – and downright annoying – when on top of all the usual bills, you discover that the hospital has charged a new mother for something as simple as touching her infant.
Take it from halfthrottle, a mom on Imgur who recently took it to the internet to share her experience. She uploaded a photo showing that, aside from the usual fees, she was billed with an additional $39.35 for a “skin to skin” contact with her newborn following her c-section.
Sounds unbelievable, you say? Well, check out the photo below!
A new mom took it to Imgur to share how a hospital charged her with additional $39.35 for “skin to skin” contact with her baby.
The Imgur post has since went viral, receiving thousands of comments and millions of views. BoredPanda, Distractify, and others have also picked up the story and shared it on their websites.
The father shared:
“The nurse let me hold the baby on my wife’s neck/chest. Even borrowed my camera to take a few pictures for us. Everyone involved in the process was great, and we had a positive experience. We just got a chuckle out of seeing that on the bill.”
Parents, have anyone ever experienced something like this? For healthcare practitioners, can you give us some insight about how is this possible? Is this really a thing now?

Iraqi Minister Claims Ancient Aliens Built World’s First Airport 7,000 Years Ago
That awkward moment when you get sidetracked at a press conference and start talking about aliens…
Iraq's transport minister, Kazem Finjan, was at a press conference to announce the construction of an airport in Dhi Qar, southern Iraq, when he mentioned that back in 5,000 BC, a spacecraft launched at the very same spot to discover Pluto and the mythical planet of Nibiru.
The well-read Finjan started talking about aliens during a press conference.
According to the minister, what was once Mesopotamia was inhabited by the Sumerians, and they helped to develop this alien space station by visiting the aliens themselves....
Dead Mermaid Washes Up on Great Yarmouth Beach, UK
Could this be proof that these mythical sea creatures actually exist?
We all know mermaids aren't real, right? They're just fantasy creatures from stories told by sailors while they're out at sea (like Christopher Columbus who claimed to have seen three off the coast of Haiti). Legends of these half-human, half-fish creatures have been around for thousands of years, from as early as 586 AD!
But when you come across something as eerie and unexplainable as this, you can't help but wonder if those fishermen were on to something.
Washed up on Great Yarmouth beach was a carcass that was neither human nor animal, but both. With its innards exposed and its teeth bared, the "mermaid corpse" has made rounds on social media all over the world....

Don't do drugs, kids. Just DON'T.
Most of us know that drugs are bad for us, but unfortunately there are some who need to be sorely reminded just how bad things can get for druggies. Now social media can be used as an effective tool to educate people on the effects of drug abuse and this video is a good example of that.
