My heart sings in the birth rooms at Feldbach Hospital. The energy, the music, the lighting the birth ambiance is everywhere. The midwife comments on the view, the openness. Even in the Operating Room there are windows so the woman can experience birth as part of life, not afraid even in this sterile environment she is connected to nature, to the day.
Look around at these images, what does your community hospital room look like?
What would it take to make a change the built environment of your local hospital to an active space? To a welcoming space? To a space that includes our families and provides a home-like environment in the hospital?
