I had the absolute pleasure of styling every room to create a calming and relaxing atmosphere for the midewife-led unit. The images have been designed to aid the women's labour, so for example there are the optimum number of dandilion clocks to count through a contraction. The styling had to be designed with built in medical equipment in mind, cleanability and with all the other restrictions of a hospital environment.
When each baby is born an oak leaf is added to the huge 'family tree' on the main wall, and the first 100 families were given a wooden acorn and leaf with their name on. The overall look and feel cannot be fully imagined through pictures, as you can only take in the full atmosphere in person.
The culmination of our hard work was the official opening by Princess Anne, who seemed truly interested in all we had achieved and the thinking behind it. I am extremely proud of what we have achieved and the feedback we have received. What a wonderful and inspiration contract.
