In 2018 I passed an MSc in Medical Humanities at King’s College London with distinction and in 2019, I shall be commencing a PhD in Critical Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia.
My PhD research focuses on the nature of foetal-parental relationships, the implications for parental mental health when these relationships are unexpectedly severed and on medical metaphors that may risk undervaluing embryonic life and women’s experiences. You can read more about it here:
