Mom and TikTok user Ms. Lily Flowers has just paid off her medical bill for giving birth to her daughter almost 2 years ago. To get some context for her situation, she posted a video on the platform asking other moms to share what age their kid was when they were finally able to pay off their childbirth bills as well.
Turns out, it’s a hot topic. Moms from all over the world immediately started responding to the question. One mom said giving birth to her premature son would’ve cost her nearly 3 million dollars but due to a few circumstances, she dodged the check. Another revealed her country fully covered it before they left the hospital.
The whole thread has become somewhat of a socioeconomic study on different healthcare systems across the globe, and it really can broaden your perspective on how governments — and people — deal with one of the most fundamental human experiences.
