Did this hospital charge a couple $40 just to hold their own baby?


Following the birth of their baby, one couple found a “skin-to-skin contact” charge on their hospital bill totaling $39.95. The Utah hospital says this was not a charge for holding their baby, but rather to cover the cost of bringing an additional caregiver into the operating room for safety.
