If there's one thing money can't buy, it's escape from pain. And when it comes to pain, there's really nothing comparable to childbirth.

So how do the ultra-wealthy and famous contend with this most humanizing of experiences? Reportedly for Beyonce and Jay-Z, it involved anything from a pre-made custom "birthing" weave to a $1.3 million rental of Lenox Hill Hospital's entire fourth floor.
