Those numbers are insane on all counts.

An uncomplicated vaginal birth hasn't changed materially in a hell of a long time. If you take the actual charge (I have several bills from this timeframe) from the 1960s and inflate them by the CPI-U you wind up with about $1,000.

If you can show me what services and products are provided in such a delivery that make a charge materially higher than that reasonable, I'm willing to listen. Being that I was there for the birth of my daughter I have a pretty good idea exactly how much time the doctor and nurses, etc spent there -- and what was actually done.
