#34 – The Economics of Reproduction, Part 2: All the Costs of Giving Birth

Today we’re completing the two-part series on the economic implications of reproducing, talking about the costs – often mysterious — of giving birth for women and others who can get pregnant, especially in the U.S.

In this episode, Kara talks to Carol Sakala from the National Partnership for Women & Families about the actual costs of delivering a baby, and shares an audio essay on the range of known and unknown stats a mother must contend with when pondering the costs of delivery.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the episode, so please email us at fairercents@gmail.com or hit us up on Twitter or Instagram at @fairercents. Thanks to our sponsor Freshbooks for their support of the show.
