TEDxDelft - Musetta Blaauw - I do not accept fate as society defines it

Musetta Blaauw, mother of three, woke up in the middle of the night, eight days after giving birth to her third child, bleeding. After being rushed to the hospital for a curettage, she woke up at the IC 15 hours later; finding out that her dream of having a large family was shattered."Luckily, you have three children already!" they told her, after explaining that after a long and chaotic day of surgery and treatment the medical team finally managed to save her life by taking out her uterus. Recovering and grieving together with nurturing her newborn she made a decision. They might have taken out her uterus, but they would not take away the decision to try for a fourth child.On 7 November 2011 over 900 people gathered in the beautiful city of Delft for the first TEDx event in Delft, the Netherlands: TEDxDelft. We had 20 live speakers on stage talking about a wide range of subjects. A few of our speakers: Theo Jansen, Irma Boom, Huba de Graaff, Leo Kouwenhoven, Erik Meijer, Lodewijk van den Berg, Kas Oostheruis, Bauke Steenhuisen and Lowie Vermeersch. More information on http://www.TEDxDelft.nlIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
