Where to give birth
Forget the Portland or the Lindo Wing, the Kensington Wing is now the place to give birth. ‘The less obvious choice means A-lister parents are guaranteed even more privacy,’ explains Tiffany. ‘The Suite has its own double bed, hotel-esque en-suite and separate living room for guests.’ Tiffany also suggests booking a C-section performed by Professor Mark Johnson – the holy grail of obstetricians. ‘It’s a luxury experience that far exceeds that of any other private maternity wing.’
Finding the best obstetrician
Word of mouth is so passé. If you want to find the most sought after obstetrician to deliver your baby then Tiffany’s expertise and knowledge on the crème de la crème of baby doctors will point you in the right direction. ‘A lot of my clients have long lists of recommended obstetricians from various private hospitals, handed down by well-meaning friends. But choosing an obstetrician is a very personal decision. I essentially match-make my clients with the personality and skills of the best obstetricians in the world. I’ve even had clients fly from halfway across the world in order to have a C-section by the consultant renowned for doing an “invisible C-section” – one without a scar’.
Turning your hospital room into ‘home’
Giving birth in a hospital, armed with hospital smells and beeping machinery is not the way the royals do it. ‘I’ve been called into numerous private maternity hospitals to transform the rooms so that they resemble a home from home. No request is too much – I’ve replaced hospital sheets with Charlotte Thomas bespoke bedsheets, had perfumeries create personalised scents to be pumped through the rooms in reed diffusers, and added artwork that replicated those of the baby’s nursery hung on walls, so that the child will feel at home.’ Tiffany has also helped source designer nightdresses which clients can give birth in, and hired baby stylists to turn newborn wardrobes into mini fashion runways.
Arranging post-birth photo shoots
Instagram-worthy birth announcements certainly aren’t something a royal baby will be subjected to, but that doesn’t mean post-birth photoshoots should be sneered at – as long as they are never shared on social media. ‘Many of my clients will book hair, makeup and a renowned fashion photographer to capture those moments after birth. It’s a memory they want to treasure.’
Best baby members’ clubs
Tiffany regularly gets asked by clients to get them membership to exclusive clubs tailored to little ones. ‘The current “must have members’ card” for West London socialites is Cloud Twelve in Notting Hill,‘ says Tiffany. ‘Once a member, your little one can indulge in various “baby groups” such as “botanists classes” or “Steiner-inspired art classes,” whilst you dash upstairs to the spa to have a colonic.’
