How Much Does Giving Birth In California Actually Cost?


When people consider having a baby, it is not that often that they make a decision based on how much it costs to actually give birth – not raise the child or take care of its needs once it is born; the price of actually going through delivery, whether it is a conventional vaginal delivery or a cesarean delivery.

As it turns out, bringing a child into the world is going to cost you an arm and a leg in some American cities, especially on the West Coast.

For example, in Sacramento, CA, a conventional delivery will cost you $15,420 on average while a cesarean delivery will cost you $27,067. The prices are equally outrageous in San FranciscoSan Diego, and Los Angeles.
