    I'd save the money and go public with a private midwife any day!

    Having the antenatal visits in your home is so convenient too!

    I'm a public hospital midwife and do tonnes of postnatal visits at hotels.

    It's no different to doing a postnatal visit at their house. We bring the stuff (scales etc) that we need anyway.

    Thanks for your comment.

    I really had no idea it was a "common" thing to do.
    So I guess it's no issue for the hotel either to have a post partum bathroom to clean...?

    About 10-20% of our birthing women relocate to our town from 36 weeks onwards until 1-2 weeks postpartum so are put up in various hotels, motels and apartments for their stay.

    Why would a post-partum bathroom be any different? Apart from needing extra loo paper and a bin full of used pads, I'm not too sure what would be making it messy?

    I don't know I use to be a cleaner in a French maternity, and I was cleaning heaps of blood.
    Good to know though

    I think I will go shared care with a midwife, give birth at RWH then go straight to Park Hyatt or the like for a family moon
    Just need to check if a private midwife would be ok doing her postnatal visit at an hotel!!

    Not sure if this has been answered properly yet, but you as long as you're within the catchment area of the midwife/hospital then I can't see any reason why they wouldn't do your follow up home visits in a hotel. I do home MW visits at times and as long as people are living or staying within the catchment area for their visits, we will see them. Might just want to let the concierge know so your MW has somewhere to park her car when she comes
