Speaker and Topic: Emma Janssen-Zhuang, Birth & Postpartum Doula, will speak about “Taking the fear out of birth: Creating a positive feeling towards labour”

Our speaker says, "Everywhere we turn, we seem to be bombarded with images and words describing how horrifying, difficult and painful labour is. Stories of painful births, emergency c-sections, labours that last 48 hours, home-births-gone-wrong, or simply how a baby can physically come out of a woman, seem to haunt families expecting a child. Well I am here to set the record straight and tell you that even without planning and preparation ahead of the big day, women can truly experience a lovely, calm and empowering birth. In my talk, I will describe what exactly goes on during labour and discuss how you can create the birth that you want. It’s time to change how we think about birth and see it as a time to look forward to instead of something to fear."

Speaker’s bio: Emma is a Canadian expat who moved to Denmark two years ago with her husband. She gave birth to their daughter in May 2014 at Rigshospitalet and has almost completed her doula certification through Childbirth International. She has worked for the Østerbro International School and is the co-founder of Birth & Beyond, an international parent network at DTU.

The Stork Club is a support group for women wishing to become pregnant, those who are pregnant and those who have given birth in the past three years. There are eight experienced leaders working with the group. You can find details of them on http://awcdenmark.org/kids_sports.html.
