This article was interesting to read because of all the things I did not know about the medical/Obsterics industry. The author found out that it cost his mother in the 40’s $70 to deliver him in the hospital. Today that would be an equivalent to $726 dollars. This article is limited to Texas and Ohio however. I would like the author to go more in-depth as to what states cost the most? Is there a discrepancy when a child is born with a defect? The article references a doctor about why this is so and the changes in times and medical innovation. I feel that he should have interviewed a parent that had a first-hand experience on the cost to have a baby and what did insurance companies cover?
