This micro-narrative describes a participatory teaching event involving students of midwifery and design. Designed using generative design methodologies and adopting storytelling as a common ground the design workshop sought to raise awareness of the spatial impact of the birth environment on all those who pass through and influence birth spaces. This narrative intends to demonstrate the value of stories in an interdisciplinary context as a vehicle for explore and provide for difference, something contemporary midwifery is committed to. The paper aims to illustrate how thinking spatially can reveal perceptions of care and bring women’s voices to the fore.
