Birthing house Letná

Diploma projects 2017 competition, 2nd place

The purpose of this work is to offer an alternative to medically led births and home births. The security offered by these institutions is often redeemed by lack of patience, communication and sometimes even dubious practices by experts. In the delivery house, birth is seen as a natural part of life, not as an "operation". Midwives provide comprehensive, continuous and individual care for the child and mother. The basic motto is to "give life", not "give birth". A woman is not treated as a patient. The circumstances of childbirth are not determined by the obstetric staff but by the mother.
