One of the unique design features
is a full-size bed rather than a
hospital bed, allowing a partner to
share the bed to facilitate massage,
coaching, and rest during labor
hours. The bed was custom built for
this project. A hot tub is conveniently
located near the bed for the mothers'
comfort during the labor process,
thoughtfully detailed with tiled walls
and niches for personal effects. Additional amenities include comfortable reclining armchairs, a birthing
hammock, birthing wedges, wireless
internet, and a writable magnetic
glass wall at the foot of the bed.
The materials and finishes used
in the Birth Center complete the
homelike atmosphere. Combining durability and cleanability, the
warm wood tones and earth-toned
sheet flooring imply a connection to
nature and create a soft character for
the suite. The bathroom and shower
are fully tiled and feature a contemporary design aesthetic including
a sliding barn door with exposed
industrial hardware. All lighting
fixtures in the suite are dimmable
and allow personalized control of
the environment and the ability to
create a homelike ambience.
The overall room atmosphere
is enhanced by the abundance of
natural light and views of the Lower
Manhattan skyline through the generous windows in each of the rooms.
The LMH Birth Center has been
open since November 2015.
