WOW! 9 Of The World's Most Luxurious Places To Deliver A Baby

maternity center
Don't you think the bathroom in your maternity suite should look like this?

Ever since Blue Ivy was born in deluxe surroundings, the media has been buzzing about luxury maternity wards.

As described by our own Sunny Chanel, Mrs. Jay-Z recuperated from birth at Lenox Hill Hospital in a completely renovated suite: “The walls are a rich mahogany, with beige and white couches and chic silver accents in the form of modern coffee tables, lamps and curtains. The suite even came with it’s own kitchenette, which was also very stylishly appointed.”

Beyonce wasn’t the first and won’t be the last to seek deluxe accommodations when having a baby. After all, why accept thin, scratchy sheets and jello cups when you can have Frette linens and champagne?  If you’ll be having a baby in the foreseeable future and can’t stand the thought of a dreary room with linoleum floors and a meager chair for your partner to sleep on, you might want to check out one of these fancy hospitals:

  • Matilda Hospital 1 of 9
    At the Matilda Hospital in Hong Kong, you have to put down a $20,000 deposit just to book a room, but that room features a balcony overlooking the South China Sea.

  • Chelsea & Westminster Hospital 2 of 9
    The Chelsea & Westminster, located in London, opened up its Kensington Wing especially for mums looking for privacy and extra care, including a champagne breakfast. They charge 6000 British pounds for a birth, which would be nearly $10,000 here.

    Grangettes in Geneva, Switzerland, is located within a beautiful green park filled with sculptures and offers a chef with a Michelin star. It's the most popular private clinic in all of Switzerland.

  • Mt. Sinai Hospital 4 of 9
    This picture of a room at Mt. Sinai doesn't do justice to the amenities offered at the Klingenstein Pavilion on Fifth Avenue, which overlooks Central Park. The bathrooms have Italian glass tile, you can get 20-minute massages, and they offer tea and cookies in the afternoons. Gwyneth Paltrow gave birth here.

  • Lakewood Family Birthplace 5 of 9
    You don't have to live on either coast to get star treatment when having a baby. If you deliver at the Lakewood Family Birthplace in Kansas City, Missouri, this is what your bathroom will look like. Holy cow!

  • Cedars-Sinai Hospital 6 of 9
    This is where the Hollywood celebrities go to deliver their posh brood. You can get a three-room, two-bath private suite for just $3,784 per day. You will receive fresh fruit and muffins, chilled juices, and can arrange for bedside salon services. Because who wants to leave the hospital looking like they just had a baby?

  • Rose Medical Center 7 of 9
    Parents Magazine says the Rose Medical Center in Denver is one of America's most luxurious. After giving birth you can take advantage of one of their private chefs. I certainly don't recall having vases and objets d'art in my maternity unit.

  • Prince of Wales Hospital 8 of 9
    The Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney has set up a maternity unit in the 4-star Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach, where you can stay in a room like this one. They even take you there by limousine. Not bad!
