Hello Kitty Hospital

kitty.jpgThis story is just too good to be true, I needed to share it with you!

Taiwan has just opened up its very first Hello Kitty Maternity Hospital. How crazy is that?!

Imagine arriving at a hospital in full labour and being greeted by nurses and doctors dressed in Hello Kitty gear, not to mention the rooms being completely decorated with Hello Kitty accessories. I think I would be so shocked that I would forget about the pain!

Whatever works to make birth a pleasurable experience for other people is fine by me. But I think there is a fair chance that I would feel like bopping a ‘Hello Kitty’-dressed doctor on the head while he was trying to give me an epidural.

I also would love to know if kids born in this hospital are going to have a secret Hello Kitty addiction…

Crazy. Although it would be cool for a kids hospital, my daughter would LOVE it!

hideous (unless you are 4).

Somehow infantilizing a woman WHILE she is having an infant seems to magnify how ridiculous the practice is…

That is wild. It’s a bit much though for me, but I wish that there was an option of a really nice hospital that you can almost feel like you are in a beautiful hotel or even better a “spa” :)
