02/10/11 Judy Bachelder, Assistant Professor of Maternal and Child Nursing at Ancilla College, was on hand as presenter for Ancilla College’s first Lampen Lecture of the semester, “The WOW of Childbirth”.
In the presentation, Bachelder highlighted some of the amazing events surrounding childbirth including how the body of the mother is well designed to meet the needs of the child.
“There are so many things that say ‘God’ to me when I look at the process of pregnancy and child birth,” said Bachelder. “It’s just the way He puts things together, the wisdom He has put into everything, down to the smallest, miniscule detail.”
Bachelder’s presentation included a number of short video clips and photographs to better illustrate the finer details of pregnancy and childbirth.
“By relying on expertise gained as a labor and delivery nurse and her deep respect for the process of pregnancy and childbirth, Mrs. Bachelder highlighted the areas of development and growth in each trimester,” said Sr. Carleen Wrasman, PHJC and Coordinator of Mission Integration and Campus Ministry.
“Ancilla College is very fortunate to have Judy as a Lampen Lecture presenter. It is even more fortunate to have Judy as a member of the nursing staff at Ancilla.”
This Lampen Lecture was held in room 231 of the College and was a free presentation open to the public.
The series was named for Sr. Joel Lampen, the first president of Ancilla College, who opened the doors of Ancilla to the local community.
The Lampen Lecture Series was designed to combine the universality of the Catholic Church, the international character of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ, who sponsor Ancilla College, and the Earth Charter to promote thinking beyond one’s own experiences and interests.
Ancilla College is a Catholic, two-year, co-educational, liberal arts college in Donaldson, Indiana sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.
