Your expert postpartum care doesn’t have to end at the hospital, thanks to the Boram Postnatal Retreat. Here’s what’s included, what it costs, and when you should book.
There’s a severe lack of postpartum care in the United States. For many, as soon as you leave the hospital, you’ll have one (or two, if you’re lucky) more appointments with your doctor at about six weeks post-birth.
With maternal mental health diagnoses rising, our new mothers deserve more hands-on, comprehensive, and deeply supportive postpartum care. Thanks to Boram Postnatal Retreat, that dream is (finally) becoming more of a reality.
What is the Boram postnatal retreat?
Located in the Langham in New York City, the Boram Postnatal Retreat offers next-level, hands-on postpartum care to new moms inspired by the Korean postpartum hotel model.
Guests can expect to receive the love and support every new parent deserves after birth through their team of postpartum doulas, specialized newborn and maternal nursing assistants, and newborn care specialists.
When you stay at Boram, you’ll get access to the following:
- 24/7 education and care on a variety of topics
- Collaborative workshops with other guests
- Postpartum care and newborn products
- 24/7 baby room staffed by baby experts
- Three nutritious meals a day prepared by an award-winning chef
- Therapeutic services like head and shoulder massages and foot reflexology
Also, in addition to the above, 1:1 coaching is provided on various topics, including newborn feeding (formula or breastmilk), lactation and breastfeeding, coping with anxiety and PPD, infant soothing, postpartum nutrition and meal prep, infant handling, and more.
As you can see, the cost of the Boram postnatal retreat (more on that below) is well worth it, considering all you receive in return.
How much does the Boram postnatal retreat cost?
The nightly rate varies depending on the type of room you book (more on that below), but they do offer package deals for those staying more than one night.
Boram offers superior rooms, five spacious suite rooms, and various packages, including three, five, and seven-night stays.
You can also contact their customer service team if you want to stay for seven nights (or more!) or like to learn about the available suite options.
How can I save on my stay at Boram?
When you book using our exclusive link, you can expect to pay the below rates. Please note that pricing changes occasionally, so check the latest rates by filling out this form or checking here.
- Three nights: $2700*
- Five nights: $4300*
- Seven nights: $5900*
*pricing is subject to change; please see Boram’s website for the latest rates.
We feel that the five-night option is the perfect length of stay. It’s long enough to begin your healing process and regain some energy post-birth, but not too long, so you don’t feel like you’re breaking the bank with mounting costs.
When should I book my stay? What else should I know?
Currently, guests who want to stay at Boram can book their visit any time during pregnancy and up to one month after birth. It’s suggested that you book at least four to six weeks before your due date due to availability (there are only 16 rooms!).
With this in mind, Boram does their best to accommodate changes to reservations (because, of course, birth is unpredictable!), but nothing is guaranteed.
When you book your stay at the Boram postnatal retreat, you can reserve your room for any time between 1 and 31 nights. Also, be prepared to make a deposit equivalent to one night’s stay for your preferred room type.
How you can save money on your Boram retreat stay
Editor’s note: as of March 2023, Boram can no longer accommodate discounts on their stay through this website. You can fill out this form to get information on the latest rate or check out any current promotions, if available.
Also, consider creating a cash fund on your baby registry to help offset the cost of your stay at Boram. You won’t need more baby blankets or books, but hands-on extended postpartum care is priceless.
