I absolutely love the idea of the hotel! I think it is a lovely way to relax and enjoy a little luxury before heading home to the potential chaos of life and if its covered by PHI then why not!
I know NIB definitely don't cover it and have heard most others do, I was just curious if anyone had used the program offered by other private hospitals and what funds you were a member of. The hospital I will birth at when the time comes will be Newcastle Private again - They didnt have the program available when I had DD, it has only just been introduced this year I think.

I'm NPH too!
Hi @beetee! I'm in Newy too! I've read in a local forum (one of the local Obs facebook pages) lots of different PHF that do offer it. So far, ive only seen nib don't. I'm with Teachers and ive seen it mentioned they do, though its on my list this week to follow up and get personal clarification directly from them!
Are you currently preg? I'd love to touch base with fellow local mummas who are birthing this year!
All the best!

Hi. All funds EXCEPT nib cover the postnatal stay at Crowne plaza newcastle. They are the only one that don't. You can change funds even after the birth without having any waiting periods. I know a few people who have changed during pregnancy. It's so worth it!

*Mini holiday ( no cooking / cleaning) and from what I've read your other children can stay with you. Missed my eldest when I was in hospital; it would have been nice if we could have been together ( and someone else cook and clean)
