As the physical environment has a profound influence on experiences, health and wellbeing of birthing women. An alternatively designed delivery room, inspired by the principles of healing architecture and Snoezelen, was established in a Danish regional hospital. The aim of the study was to explore women's experience of the environment and its ability to support patient-centered care.

The excerpts of findings supports the understanding of how the physical design of birth environments influence on the well-being of patients and could play a central role in the discussion of how to make future birth environments not only patient-centered but also based on a family- centered approach.
