One of the larger concerns of expectant parents is the cost of delivering a baby.
(PRWEB) October 03, 2013
Many first time parents suffer a bit of sticker shock when they realize all the new costs that come with their new bundle of joy. One of the larger concerns of expectant parents is the cost of delivering a baby.
So exactly how much is the cost of delivering a baby? Maternity.com is taking an exclusive look in a special new piece.
“There are many different factors to contribute to the cost of delivering a baby,” said Maternity.com spokeswoman Julia Blair. “Everything from how the child is delivered, to insurance coverage, to geographical location will be a factor in the total cost.”
The new and exclusive piece uncovers that a factor that largely determines the cost of having a baby is whether the birth is natural or by Cesarean section and whether complications set in afterward. How long the patient remains in the hospital and where the hospital is located also plays a role. The Northeast and West Coast are the most expensive for childbirth, while costs are lower in the South.
“There are also laws that help regulate the cost of having a baby that many parents may not be aware of,” said Blair. “In addition, an aspect that may be a surprise to new parents is the fact the child will be billed separately from the standard cost of the delivery.”
The investigative piece on the cost of having a baby is just one of dozens of new articles designed to prepare expectant parents on Maternity.com. There are also updates on the latest celebrity pregnancies, trending topics and a very special “Mommy Blog” written exclusively for the site.
