Building Intrapartum Research Through Health

The COST Action BIRTH is an EU-funded program promoting interdisciplinary research networks in 36 countries, aimed at understanding and contextualising physiological labour and birth. The TESIS research focuses birth spaces with the purpose of identifying the best spatial and environmental conditions for users (in terms of both workload management, comfort and care) and supporting a participatory process in order to implement the awareness of birth. Due to the recent increasing of the intervention rates in childbirth, the crucial point of this research is trying to understand how the physical environment affects childbirth outcomes and exploring the connection between birth spaces and users’ experience.
