I love a good hotel package, and the Hilton properties in the Boston area have a promotion called "And Baby Makes Three" to help prospective expectant couples become actually expectant.
Packages at the four participating hotels start at $169 plus tax and include: an overnight stay, a romantic CD ("Your Heart and Soul'' by the incomparable love meister Barry White), champagne and chocolates, and a copy of "The Everything Getting Pregnant Book.''
To book, you must contact the hotels directly: Hilton Boston Back Bay, 617-236-1100; Hilton Boston Logan Airport, 617-568-6700; Doubletree Hotel Boston-Downtown, 617-956-7900; and Doubletree Guest Suites Boston-Waltham, 781-890-6767.
And one last thing: According to the National Center for Health Statistics, most babies are born in July, August, and September and on Tuesdays-Fridays (if that sort of thing matters to you).
Here's a little Barry to get you thinking.
