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?
