Cost of Birth
A friend of ours just had a baby and said that they went to a government hospital and saved themselves R15 000 compared to a private hospital.

Can this be true, if so, how much does the birth of a baby cost at a government hospital?

The charges at a government hospital depend on your salary and whether or not you are on medical aid. There is a sliding scale related to this.
