Is the upgrade worth it?

my hospital offers an upgrade where you get a whole bunch of stuff like a robe, baby pjs, real steak for your partner, 25 dollars for spa services, a free portrait of baby, and LOTS of other very nice stuff.
the only problem is that it's like $200

what do you think?

  • If you can spare the $200, it sounds nice, otherwise....not necessary.

  • I second mompam...I mean all that for $200 doesnt sound bad. Now how big is the steak and what size is the picture lol The newborn pictures where I live are like $125 for a package.

  • No I don't think it's worth it. I was in the Hospital for 3 days, I didn't have time for a spa service nor did I want one. My D/H was exhausted & really how can you enjoy a steak dinner in a hospital? YUK! That's my opinion unless I am misunderstanding something here.

  • I'd be kind of disturbed that my hospital is offering "upgrades" to what are essentially medical services. I can tell you that whatever robe, steak and whatever else they give you were most likely donated. So for them to be asking you to pay $200 that can't be billed to insurance for stuff they didn't pay for seems....kind of wrong to me.

  • the steak is filet mignon so it's rather small but beats salisbury (there's also the option of salmon or roast chicken).
    the picture is 8x10
    and the spa services are good for longer than your stay at the hospital, so if preferred you can come back
