The objective of this study was to explore whether - and in what ways - the design of hospital birth units might influence midwives and their practice. To do this, the study aimed to elicit midwives’ perceptions and beliefs about the design and aesthetics of hospital birth rooms. By exploring midwives’ responses to their own varied workplaces, the study intended to increase understanding of design features and characteristics that can support the provision of quality midwifery care.
