Jessie Parenting Sanctuary
We are delighted to introduce the Jessie Parenting Sanctuary: Exceptional high-level care coupled with a luxury post-natal stay at Hotel Chadstone Melbourne, MGallery by Sofitel
The Jessie Parenting Sanctuary at Hotel Chadstone Melbourne, MGallery by Sofitel is an exciting and luxurious choice available to new parents. Mother and baby can leave the hospital together and continue to enjoy post-natal care in a hospital-assimilated environment in the five-star luxury of the stunning Hotel Chadstone.
This service is an extension of Jessie McPherson Private Hospital and is fully supported by our Maternity Unit and our highly qualified and experienced staff.
Following the birth, and provided mother and baby both meet the criteria, the obstetrician and paediatrician may give approval for a transfer to Hotel Chadstone. Mother and baby remain patients of Jessie McPherson Private Hospital throughout the stay at both facilities.
“Partnering with our Obstetricians, Paediatricians and other key stakeholders, we aim to make this an even more memorable experience for all families that choose Jessie McPherson Private Hospital as their preferred health service to birth”
“At Jessie McPherson Private Hospital we are very excited to offer as part of our maternity services the opportunity for all eligible families to spend part of their post birthing stay in the Jessie Parenting Sanctuary at the luxurious Hotel Chadstone. I am extremely proud of our team who have worked tirelessly to make this initiative a reality. Partnering with our Obstetricians, Paediatricians and other key stakeholders, we aim to make this an even more memorable experience for all families that choose Jessie McPherson Private Hospital as their preferred health service to birth.” Thinesh Chandraratne, CEO, Jessie McPherson Private Hospital.
The Jessie Parenting Sanctuary opened during the first week of May with our first families experiencing the luxury stay on International Day of the Midwife 2021. Janelle Gridley, Maternity Unit Manager, Jessie McPherson Private Hospital, commented on how her team felt about the new service “The midwifery team are very happy to have a new environment to work in that allows one on one conversations, more time for education and support of new families. The views are great too!”
Feedback from our first families to experience the Jessie Parenting Sanctuary has been very positive, Janelle went on to say “Our women are excited for the opportunity to be able to transition to home via this luxury hotel and feel less like a hospitalised patient but retain the input from an experienced midwife. Being able to have their toddler with them and unlimited visitors is appealing as well.”
“Honestly, we would rate our stay and experience 10/10.”
Our very first family to stay at the Jessie Parenting Sanctuary, Stephanie and Josh with baby Harvey, said “Whilst our little one was overdue – he timed his arrival into the world well because he got to be the first baby to experience the Jessie Parenting Sanctuary at Hotel Chadstone! We found staying at the hotel prior to coming home, the perfect stepping stone after leaving hospital. Staying in a comfy bed, quiet room and having in room dining was certainly a treat after giving birth. The best part of the stay was having some peace and quiet and privacy – with the benefit of a midwife on 24hr call just next door. We asked a million questions, and soaked up as much information as we could before heading home. Honestly, we would rate our stay and experience 10/10.”
We’ve enjoyed hosting visits from our specialist Obstetricians over the last week, Dr Shavi Fernando said “After seeing the rooms and service at Hotel Chadstone, there is now no reason any woman in the South Eastern suburbs would deliver anywhere other than Jessie McPherson. As well as being the safest hospital to have your baby, it is also now uniquely comfortable thanks to the post-natal hotel stay. This is a game changer.”
