Complimentary Concierge Service for Expecting Parents

Welcoming a baby into the world is one of life's greatest experiences.

St. Jude will work with expectant parents to learn their preferences and concerns regarding childbirth. Our goal is a pregnancy journey that addresses their head and heart.

We offer a complimentary concierge service for expecting parents that can take care of tasks such as purchasing gifts for siblings, arranging a photographer, hiring a night nurse, setting up a diaper delivery service or arranging a celebratory mani-pedi for Mom. The concierge service at St. Jude Medical Center is a perfect complement to the exceptional clinical care provided by our physicians and caregivers.

Here are just a few things that we can help you with in order to free up expectant parents' time to focus on what matters most. There is no fee for the concierge service—they only pay for the cost of goods and services requested.
