This image depicts that a certain room is available within a social setting such as a hotel, airport, convenience store or shopping mall, which parents can utilize to provide care for their young children if needed. When parents are travelling with their children, they may need to change them if they have wet their current clothes or nappies. As a result, due to rising consciousness and sensitivity towards mothers who are travelling with their children, majority of institutions, organizations, and buildings all around the world are crafting plans in architecture to factor in these parents’ needs. Most of the women are women in their motherhood. Previously, women had to change their children in cars or in women’s lavatories, which led to concerns and influenced the need for provision of specialized rooms required for childcare.
