“For the hospital I paid R31 460, which includes the use of their theatre in the unlikely event of a c-section. I didn’t have a natural birth. I ended up with an emergency c-section. My midwife had a birthing fee of R9000 and the paediatrician cost R3000,” detailed the woman who had expected to pay a total of R43 460.
