Hello Kitty Maternity Hospital

The Hau Sheng Hospital in central Taiwan has created a complete Hello Kitty atmosphere for mothers giving birth there to ease the ordeal of labour. At first, I thought it might be overboard to create a Hello Kitty maternity hospital but then after about 2 whole minutes, I changed my mind. Hospitals can be so stale and well, not cheerful, to be in so why not make it cute and happy with Hello Kitty?

The bedding, tables and decorations also feature Hello Kitty. The lucky newborns at the 30-bed hospital are wrapped in a Hello Kitty receiving blanket of pink or blue.

As a mommy, anything that’s comforting while stuck in the hospital is a welcome relief. There is something to be said about being surrounded by fun, playful images of Hello Kitty after you’ve been through a long emotional and physical ordeal. Having said that, it might have some of the opposite effect on my husband. It might just be a Hell-o Kitty Prison for him.
