both midwives and nurses to care for
patients. The new rooms give families
a homebirth atmosphere with a safety
net of medical experts who are easily
and quickly accessible in the event of
any unexpected complication during
delivery.
The suites are the first low-intervention option available in midMissouri, and include features such
as hydrotherapy, a Murphy bed, and
other specialized equipment. Because
of this and other patient-centered
approaches, MU Women's and
Children's Hospital recently received
the global Baby-Friendly designation
from the World Health Organization
and the United Nations Children's
Fund.
Converting four labor-and-delivery rooms-above active operating
rooms-into two low-intervention
rooms was a challenge. By using
existing restroom locations, the
amount of construction was reduced
and created a secluded space for a
labor tub and patient lift. A Murphy
bed in each room allows a homelike
atmosphere that still meets infection
control requirements. To further
promote a comfortable environment,
all medical components are hidden
behind cabinets or slider frames for
ease of access. The fetal monitor and
computer screens are the only visible
pieces of technology.
The warm, soft, natural colors and

standards. Finishing touches include

finishes offer a spa-like atmosphere,

local nature photography taken and

yet can be cleaned to infection control

donated by nurses.
