Yup, the wife calls me at work today and says she got a letter from the hospital outlining the charges for having our first baby in a few weeks. Over $1K after insurance. I had no idea what it would cost, but I was still a little surprised. Now maybe that is a reasonable amount...not sure. All I know is my wife was laid off in June and hasn't found a job yet and thankfully has a little of $ coming in each month thanks to unemployment. My job doesn't pay the greatest and now we've got another large bill to add to the pile. I sure hope the hospital has a payment plan! Any other new parents (or recent parents) feel my pain?
