That is bad! I had no idea a baby was so expensive anyways. Think about it: babies (pregnancy) and labor is like 70% of all hospital profit. I have been getting my doctor bill, and since my past insurance was crap (I had to pay 20% of every bill) it KILLED me. It still amazes me that a urine test at my past office, that I had to take every trip, was $70 and both ultrasounds were nearly $600 each. Don't even get me started on the $700 blood tests they do. It isn't fair! You would think people would be pro-life and wanting to make it easier for pregnant women. Imagine someone who was in your situation and didn't have insurance. That 1500 bill is WAY too much! So I totally agree (to a certain extent) At least your bill is only $150! Next time I suggest waiting until you know you are having contractions with a pattern and for a few hours before going in.
