Stork Club Stork

When:          Monday, September 22 at 10:00 – 12:00
Where:         The home of Fiona Thomas in Charlottenlund.
Speaker:      Chris Knight, lactation specialist
Cost:           10 kroner
RSVP:         By Sunday, September 21 to jonellecarter@lemcke.dk,

Chris Knight is a lactation scientist at Copenhagen University. Chris explains his work and says the following: “My research is what we call "basic science" (in other words, trying to understand biological mechanisms), "integrative" ("how does a whole animal work" rather than "how does a gene work") and "comparative" (deliberately contrasting different mammalian species). I work with cows but also with mice (and bats!) and I am also involved in breastfeeding projects, including in relation to premature birth. My objectives are to improve the welfare of the producers of milk (cows and breastfeeding mothers) and the consumers of milk (babies, but also children and adults through to pensioners). My talk will address in more general terms the benefits of breastfeeding for mother and baby, and then also give some interesting (I hope!) examples of lactation in different species to compare with breastfeeding.”


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. Eight experienced leaders work with the group and are available for advice and consultation. You can find a detailed list of these specialists if you follow this link: Stork Club Advisors.
