It's a known fact that any service at a hospital comes with extreme, and oftentimes unnecessary costs. 2 Ibuprofens can run you 50X the cost that it would from a drugstore. And I get it; hospitals have huge overhead costs and profits must be made (especially when your talking about the American Healthcare system, right?), but a charge to hold your child?!! Your baby. The tiny, little person that you and your partner created and that lived inside of you for the better part of a year. There is a charge for you to hold that person??
This is too ridiculous.
