Hospital charges new mum $39.35 to hold her newborn baby

A Reddit user posted a bill which has quickly gone viral on the web. Listed in the bill which was given to the new mother was $39.35 charge for holding her own baby after delivery in a recent labor and delivery service in the United States. The bill shows a charge for “skin to skin after C-section.” The Reddit user who posted it explained more in a few comments.

He wasn’t exactly mad about the charge, he said the hospital did a great job delivering his son. Instead, it more of spoke to the absurdity of American health care.
He said:
During the C-section the nurse asked my wife if she would like to do skin to skin after the baby was born. Which of course anyone would say yes too. We just noticed it in the bill today. The nurse let me hold the baby on my wife's neck/chest. Even borrowed my camera to take a few pictures for us. Everyone involved in the process was great, and we had a positive experience. We just got a chuckle out of seeing that on the bill."
The image has been shared several times on social media.

Imagine being charged for curdling my little Angel immediately after delivery, who does such an absurd thing? Hope they didn't also charge her for breast feeding...? #Sic

Well, I know they charge for photos of you holding the baby immediately after delivery in the labour room.of course they give you the photos do won't complain.but wetin very her own? I'm sure it's their way to get money from insurance company.they can sometimes add ridiculous charges to contact some money from insurance company who will be paying the bill.
