Hospital Charged Parents For WHAT After Delivering Baby

Did you know it costs $40 for your baby to get held at the hospital?  Appears to be that way!  40 bucks for skin to skin contact!

Ryan Grassley son was  born at Utah Valley Hospital via a planned C-section last month.
When Grassley and his wife got their hospital bill, they noticed a strange charge for $39.35.
It was listed as ““skin to skin after c-sec,” which Grassley said refers to when he had placed his newborn on his wife’s chest after the C-section in order to bond with the baby.

A spokesperson from the hospital replied after the post went viral saying:

“There is an additional charge associated with bringing an extra caregiver into the OR. The charge is not for holding the baby, but for the additional caregiver needed to maintain the highest levels of patient safety.”
