Moms Are Posting How Much They Paid To Give Birth And The Numbers Are Going Viral

One TikTok user’s question is going viral after she asked other moms to share what age their kid was when they were finally able to pay off their childbirth bill.

The user revealed it took her a total of two years to pay off her debt.

Another mom, who delivered premature triplets revealed how her bill was over a million for each baby.

And for those who believed the moms were fudging the numbers, many hospital employees were quick to confirm that the bills sounded accurate.

That being said, while the cost is significantly higher for babies who stayed in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) — it is still very expensive for babies who do not.

Some mothers were not able to pay off the bills until their kids were in elementary school.

Even with good insurance, in the U.S., you can expect to fork over thousands of dollars.

This led many users commenting how their countries handle post-birth-payments, if any.

One Canadian user for example revealed how she could not relate to any of the American mom as giving birth did not cost her a thing.

Some places even pay after you have a baby. While others, give you a little gift.

Maybe it’s time to start planning to have a baby overseas?
