As soon as your pregnancy is confirmed, you're likely going to start doing everything from planning your nursery to purchasing baby bottles for your son or daughter-to-be. With the progression of your pregnancy calendar, you're also going to need to find a hospital or alternate location to give birth in. Whether you want to have a natural childbirth without the use of medications or you're allowing doctors to take matters into their own hands, it's critical to settle on a place where you'll be comfortable.
This is just what Kate Middleton did when she found out she was expecting, according to The Sun. The news source reported that the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William allegedly didn't skimp when it came to selecting a hospital for Middleton to deliver their child. The couple is rumored to have booked a lavish birthing suite for £10,000, which is the equivalent of more than $15,000, for a three-night stay. The Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital room is fully equipped with WiFi, satellite television and a safe. Administrators also assured the two that privacy will be the utmost priority with blackout curtains surrounding the area.
This isn't the first time that the Lindo Wing has made headlines for its royal guests. Princess Diana gave birth to both of her sons, William and Harry, in the wing in the 1980s. Since the Lindo Wing opened in 1937, it seems to have attracted people who desire the utmost care and appreciate its top quality.
How do I find a hospital for my baby?
Unless you come from a wealthy lineage or one of royalty, it might be challenging to book a birthing suite for thousands of dollars a night. However, this doesn't mean that you can't find a location where you and your baby are safe and comfortable.
As you begin to think about how you plan to deliver your child, you're going to need to ask yourself if you want to do so at a hospital or at home. Many women choose to have their babies in the comfort of their own homes, which may require you to seek care from a midwife or professional nurse for assistance. If you decide to have your baby at a hospital, don't forget to take factors into consideration such as free parking and room service.
