I've never been to the Sistine Chapel before, but I think the Lutherans have a better idea here.  The mothers' room in the back of the church, was where women (ladies, as we would refer to them) would take care of crying and hungry babies.

The mothers' room was usually vacant, so it was a great place to goof off and bullshit with your friends during the service when you were ushering.
