Why not have your baby in style? Luxury birthing suites include everything from thick robes warmed on towel warmers to restaurant catered meals. Having a baby is a chance to be pampered by the best.
Luxury birthing suites and experiences are a growing option that is available to pregnant moms. And while even here you can go to extremes (one New York City hospital offers a $700,000 experience), most luxury birthing suites can be affordable with a little bit of savings. Depending on the amenities and the views, you can find a sliding scale of available luxury rooms in the average range of $500-$750 a night, including options for the baby’s father or a support person. In some areas, these suites can be has for as little as $75 more a night than what most insurance will cover.
What are some of the typical luxuries that might be included in a luxury birthing suite? Along with the towels and the catered meals, you will usually find a guaranteed and large private room, concierge service, concealed medical equipment, wood paneling and glass tile, luxury sleeper chairs for guests, spa-inspired bathrooms, Internet ports, sconces and upscale mirrors, movable walls that can configure the space the way the patient wants, flat screen televisions, kitchen areas or refrigerators stocked with gourmet goodies and more.
Other perks include extended visiting hours.
In general, most luxury birthing suites are available only at major hospitals, but this is definitely changing. Hospitals are finding that moms (and dads) really want to take advantage of a service like this to make the birth of their baby even more of a celebration. Sometimes family and friends will get together and give a luxury birthing suite experience to the couple instead of the typical shower gifts of diapers and baby outfits.
To find out how to get your own luxury birthing experience, simply search online or ask your designated hospital about the options that are available.
