wow, I can't believe it - these numbers are crazy! Over here everything is covered by insurance, but I don't have a clue how much they would charge. I only know that my midwife gets about 450€ for a homebirth plus 300€ for being on standby for 6 weeks (or is it 4? I'm not sure).
When we had to have our emergency C/S in Thailand we had to pay for everything ourselves: surgery, 4 day stay in a private room, no extra meds though apart from painkillers. But it was a packet price anyway: 750€. Yes, I'm serious! In a good, international hospital with excellent care (everybody mw I've seen so far was really impressed with the neat C/S scar I have). Of course that was Thailand and the wages there are terribly low, but still...
