The average cost to raise a child form birth to age 18 is around $233,000.00 to $300,000.00

The cost is for food, clothing, giving birth to the child, doctors visits etc.

Raising a child is expensive as well as being hard work.

Having children will also likely raise your blood pressure and your food bill as well so you need to have a good income to properly provide for the child.

All Major Health Insurance plans and companies do pay for a mother giving birth in the hospital.

It's a good idea to have health insurance for any health related costs as it can get costly and giving birth is costly as well.

The average cost to give birth to a baby in a hospital is around $10,000.00 to $15,000.00 depending on the hospital.

Also that cost is for giving birth without any complications and if you have any complications with the birth of your baby in the hospital then the cost can go up to $25,000.00 to $30,000.00

If the baby needs to stay in the NICU for awhile then the cost can go up.

It can be very expensive to give birth to a baby in a hospital but it's actually best to go to the hospital if possible to give birth.

If you have health insurance then the health insurance will pay for and cover the cost of giving birth in the hospital.

All Major Health Insurance companies and plans will pay for giving birth to a baby or babies in the hospital.

The health insurance coverage for giving birth also includes prenatal care, inpatient services, postnatal care, and newborn care.
