Birmingham Children's Hospital

This is the postcard they made for the launch today of the Quiet Room and Rainbow Room installations. Tea and cake and they presented me with a bouquet which was very nice. I gave a short speech explaining the rationale behind it, but not too much as I wanted everyone to come to it with their own ideas. The reactions were very pleasing and the nursing staff said it was making a real difference to the parents. One small person exhailed a loud 'Wow!' as everyone trouped into the Rainbow Room. It was also very lovely (as well as indicative of how long this project has been going) that one of the bereaved mothers had told me she was pregnant again at oneof the consultation days and there she was with a 3-month old baby. Very heartening and renewing.
