Prince Williams wife Kate gave birth on Monday to their third child in the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in London. Though this ward with all amenities is considered top notch, the deluxe room package for 24 hours with non-Caesarian delivery still costs less than an average birth in the Unites States. That sum does not include costs of care before or after giving birth. Figures compiled by The Economist
show that the Swiss also pay quite a price for child delivery.
