Lisa Ferland Headshots-13 LOW

Lisa Ferland has a Masters in Public Health in Epidemiology from Emory University and she currently works as a public health consultant in addition to pursuing her writing career.

Lisa has given birth in the US and in Sweden and experienced two ends of the spectrum in pain-free birth—one with drugs and one without. Is it possible to experience a pain-free drug-free childbirth? You’ll have to read her chapter in Knocked Up Abroad to find out.

Her writing has been published in the Wall Street Journal Expat, ParentCo, Kinstantly, Motherly, Mamalode, Good Men Project, The Local Sweden, MotherUs, and Slow Travel Stockholm, and she has been interviewed on numerous podcasts.

She loves connecting with mothers around the world and discovering the fascinating ways women give birth and parent around the globe. Knocked Up Abroad and Knocked Up Abroad Again are her book babies because she’s done having baby babies.
