Worth the Price?

Hospital v. Birth Center/Home Birth

There are two big problems with the costs of maternity care today for healthy low-risk women:
  • Every woman and pregnancy is treated like a high-risk pregnancy
  • It's expensive
  • There are too many interventions
  • Women aren't educated about their choices. The risks and benefits are unknown when making potentially life-changing decisions
 
Hospital  v. Out-of-Hospital
  • Consider your deductible (usually $3,000-$10,000), the costs and the type of plan you have, 80/20 or 70/30.​ Remember, you will pay 20-30% of the bill AFTER your deductible.​
