Chosing a maternity hospital

    Hello fellow fathers (or fathers to be)! My wife and I will have our first child in about six months and we need to choose a maternity hospital. The doctor and hospital we are currently set up with both have a great reputation but when I used my insurance company’s website to get a cost estimate I was shocked! This particular hospital charges about 160% of what the competition charges. We have just bought a home and I am fairly new with my company so we are stretched a little thin at the moment. The cost difference between this hospital and others, out of pocket, is about what I make in two weeks (take home) and I know this is just the first of many upcoming expenses. I don’t want to scrimp on something this important and I want it to be a positive experience, but at the same time, the bills have to get paid. I guess my questions are, how big of a difference did it make between different hospitals and how did you go about choosing one?
