The very first room for support we worked on is in Raigmore hospital, Inverness. The request came from the Chaplaincy staff sharing with us that parents often spend time in this room while in the hospital or for follow up appointments/counseling after the death of a baby.
Simpson’s Maternity- Edinburgh- Autumn 2012
We were approached by the staff at Simpson’s to see how the charity could help improve the current facilities in the unit for the families who sadly have to use them. Another large project that we were please to be involved in. We worked with the staff in re-decorating and re-furnishing four rooms in the unit, two Family rooms and a sitting room in the labour ward and the counseling room on the ground floor.
As with the Raigmore counseling room this room was previously dark with dated fuirniture; it has now been painted and re-furnished with a new Chris Thomson picture and lights. A much more soothing room.
