Yoga class starts shortly, the pristine massage centre is open for business and cheesecake is served on a platter of pastries and fruit.Mother and son are accompanied at all times by a nanny who sleeps in the same room.A photography studio captures those precious early days of life, while a "Mother's Classroom" runs lectures for new mums to learn how to care for their baby -- and themselves.One reason is that Chinese today are now giving birth later in life -- meaning grandparents are older and may not be able to help as much.Demand has also ramped up since China began phasing out its one-child policy in 2015 .
