A 'reflective' space, offering comfort and privacy while meeting medical needs
Overnight stay room
How to create a space supportive to parents facing the devastating experience of giving birth to a stillborn child. Leicester Hospitals Charity approached us to design a comforting environment offering privacy at this most sensitive time whilst still meeting medical needs.
Example of presentation
Our conversations with the maternity team guided our design, emphasising soft colours and lighting with a homely feel. The suite has a fully fitted kitchen and en-suite bathroom with a double bed and a sofa bed. Mothers, partners, and family are given time and space well away from the noise and bustle of the nearby maternity ward. The ‘bedhead services` associated with hospital beds are discreetly concealed, as is nursing equipment. The attached nursery has a soft curtain separating it from the recovery room rather than a door, as mothers often want to see their child more than once as part of the grieving process.
