The costs of prenatal care and giving birth
The possible change in abortion law would affect millions of women in many states. This hour, we have a conversation about the cost of giving birth. Medical bills can be shocking to women and families. It can be difficult to know, in advance, how much labor and delivery will cost, and what insurance covers (or doesn't cover).
Our guests share their experiences and we explore what we know about the cost of different forms of prenatal, delivery, and maternal care. Our guests:
- Jane Dodds, former medical practice manager
- Cassandra Nickels, mother of two children
- Mohini Sharma, organizing director at Metro Justice
