Until recently, being a busy pregnant executive in a high-powered New York City job meant putting a career on hold for an extended period of time before the arrival of the baby. Moreover, a high percentage of women executives never returned from maternity leave – or left their job shortly after returning. But that doesn’t have to be the case, thanks to new maternity concierge services that are making it easier for new moms (and moms-to-be) to manage every aspect of their personal and professional lives.
In just the past five years, maternity concierge services in NYC have gone mainstream. The first breakthrough was the 2011 Bravo TV series, “Pregnant In Heels,” which featured the story of Rosie Pope, a London-born maternity concierge who charged $500 per hour to busy and stressed out New York executives. Since that time, workplaces have adopted the maternity concierge concept as a potential workplace perk to hold on to their talented female executives. It’s now completely normal for a maternity concierge to show up on the set of the “Today” show in New York.
And, as the maternity concierge concept has caught on with New York moms, it’s led to a real change in how they are being used. You can think of the services that the maternity concierge provides as being divided into several basic categories.
There are some that fall under the rubric of nanny services, such doing laundry, taking care of light housekeeping, preparing meals, and making sure young toddlers get to where they need to go – schools, doctors or play dates.
And then there are some services that are more along the lines of what you might expect a personal assistant to take care of – scheduling appointments, taking notes during meetings, and making sure that a pregnant executive is able to keep up with a steady stream of corporate commitments nearly up to the date of birth.
Where the real innovation has occurred, though, is with high-end, premium services that are specifically tailored to the unique needs of New York moms. These include helping to set up a designer nursery, planning a baby shower at just the right restaurant, and making sure that moms-to-be are taking advantage of the full range of only-in-New York activities.
The real goal of most maternity concierge services, including those provided by Your Concierge NYC, is to make women feel special during one of the most important moments of their lives. One case in point: there has been a spike in the number of New York women who want to travel to exotic island destinations with their newborn, leaving behind their tiny NYC apartments. To make that a reality, they can use a maternity concierge to plan all the details: booking the flights and rental property, making sure that the destination has everything needed to take care of their children, and generally assisting in making sure that everything goes according to plan.
It’s the same type of service you might expect from a high-end hotel concierge. Just as you wouldn’t give a second thought to asking a concierge at the St. Regis or The Pierre to book an impossible-to-find table at a trendy midtown restaurant, today’s New York moms are taking full advantage of their maternity leave, experiencing unique moments with their newborn while letting someone else take care of all the details.

In New York City, the personal concierge is no longer just for the captains of industry living uptown on Park Avenue or the entertainment and media moguls living downtown. If you’re leading a busy, stressed out life and find yourself barely having time to enjoy living in the city, you could be the type of New Yorker who could benefit from becoming a member of Your Concierge NYC, a lifestyle management firm that’s dedicated to taking care of all your personal needs.
You can think of the personal concierge as a personal assistant and a five-star hotel concierge rolled into one. For example, you could use the concierge as a personal assistant to take care of everyday arrangements, or as a hotel concierge to book spa and salon appointments at the most exclusive places in the city. Or, you could just as easily use the personal concierge service to take care of bespoke arrangements for an upcoming event – like a birthday party in Central Park, a VIP corporate event at the Four Seasons or an anniversary cruise around the tip of Manhattan.
The key reason to become a member of a lifestyle management company like Your Concierge NYC is because you get access to all the perks of membership. You don’t have to worry about being told that a service is not available, or that bookings aren’t being accepted. As a valued member, you will have the peace of mind of knowing that you can have any request – no matter how trivial or how grandiose – carried out according to your specifications and needs.
And, better yet, a service like Your Concierge NYC becomes better the more you use it. That’s because it’s easy to set up your preferences and just order “the usual” when you need to use a service again. So, no more explaining in precise detail what types of personal shopper experiences you prefer, or what types of events are best for young kids in your family, or how you want your foods prepared. The efficient and dedicated staff at Your Concierge NYC will take care of everything for you.
This is a service that’s perfect for so many different types of people – for busy executives and their families, for young families moving to the city who need help with relocation assistance, and for young single professionals who want to focus more on their professional and romantic lives than on mundane and time-consuming tasks. It’s also great for young startup entrepreneurs in the city, who might want to provide membership services as a workplace perk for their employees.
If you ever wondered how phenomenally successful people in New York City seem to get so much done, almost all of them will tell you it’s because they have paid help. If you’ve ever thought about how much easier it would be to have a personal assistant at your beck and call, or how much easier things would be if you didn’t have to track down restaurant reservations and doctor’s appointments, now there’s a solution. Your Concierge NYC is your lifestyle, your way. It’s all about simplifying and enriching your lifestyle, so that you can enjoy the best New York has to offer.
