Dad says hospital charged $39 to hold newborn baby

(WSPA)— A man says he had to pay to hold his baby in the hospital after his wife gave birth.

The new dad posted a picture of his hospital bill.

He says he had to pay $39 to hold his newborn baby. It’s called the “skin to skin” fee. That fee is when the operating room requires an additional staff member to be present and make sure the baby is safe.

The dad has a sense of humor about it and he’s started a GoFundMe page to pay the $39.
