Could we have expected anything less for the long-anticipated birth of Maxwell Drew Johnson?
After the new daughter of Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson made her debut this morning at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, mother, baby and family were settled into a birthing suite that offers every amenity and then some.
According to the hospital’s website, the Deluxe Maternity Suites “are designed to create surroundings for new families that combine the ultimate in comfort with the compassionate, expert care found at our renowned facility. …From the elegant accommodations to the extra personal care we provide, we know how to pamper mothers and their new babies.”
Translation: Commoners need not apply.
Jessica reportedly booked the largest of the suites, a three-bedroom, two-bath setup that enables family members to enjoy time with the new mother and baby for the duration of their stay.
So what will Maxwell’s mom get for her $3,784 daily fee?
Here are a few of the amenities the hospital provides:
- A trained, certified “mother’s assistant” who can help Mom get comfortable attending to her baby’s daily needs.
- A flat-screen TV, DVD player and stereo.
- A fridge with chilled water and fresh juices, plus a basket of fresh fruit and muffins.
- A private dinner for the new parents, featuring “a menu specially catered for this occasion.”
- For an extra fee, “salon services” such as mani-pedis, haircut and style.
- Also extra: limousine and security services and home visits from a private-duty nurse and/or a lactation consultant.
For that finishing touch, the new mom gets her own fluffy “Suite Experience” robe – handy for wearing during 3:00 AM colic sessions.
The rooms themselves feature a carpeted sitting area, white walls with salmon accents and red and white couches, chairs and linens.
Let the record reflect that I am not a bit envious of Jessica and her luxury accommodations. Despite the fact that my two postpartum experiences consisted of lying in standard-issue hospital beds next to roommates, eating lemon Jell-O and craning my neck to watch the morning shows on the 12″ overhead TV screen.
Nope, no jealousy here.
