  1. Hello all...

    pregnancy test(lab fee)
    prenatal care - med fees
    childbirthing classes
    med fees for delivery and 6 month checkup
    hospital.childbirthing center total costs
    anesthesia fees
    caesarean delivery

    thanks so much all for ANY and all info...

    RARELY are NURSES involved in tracking or even KNOWING such costs. It is enough to assume care of people w/o adding such responsibilities to our repertoire. May I suggest you contact the billing dept of a hospital/birthing center to find the information? They can either tell you what you need to know, or at least point you in the right direction. I wish you well!

    Perhaps you could contact hospital billing or billing sites on the net....If there is someone in your family comfortable with sharing, you could also ask them to request a copy of their in pt bill, which usually lists specific costs.....
