So-called ‘Beyonce’ birthing room looks just like my kitchen
The New York Daily News broke a story this week about how staffing posh executive birthing suites, like the one Beyonce stayed in at New York’s Lennox Hill Hospital, reportedly puts the rest of newborns in the maternity ward at risk. According to some veteran Lennox Hill nurses, up to 18 babies in the maternity ward are being left in the care of a single nurse, while others flock to the bedside of better-paying customers.
The so-called ‘Beyonce’ room runs $1750 per night, excluding medical costs, and includes a laundry list of elite vacation essentials:
Terry cloth robes
Wood floors and cabinets
A doting nurse, or several near bedside
And the same tile backsplash I have in my kitchen:
The resemblance is uncanny. If I’d taken the time to shoot the backsplash in my kitchen in the right light, you’d be able to see how almost identical the tile backsplashes are!
Not Those Kennedys also has it on good authority that for an additional $2,000 per item, moms-to-be can take advantage of the following amenities:
Quiet birth. Also known as elective C-section. Painful birth is for the poor and uninsured.
A full-time wet nurse. It’s the new accessory. No embarrassing and painful breast-feeding attempts ever have to scar your memory of childbirth. Just hand your infant over to the care of a professional milk producer.
