Medical Humanities

In 2018 I received a distinction for an MSc in Medical Humanities at King’s College London.

I started a PhD with the title ‘Flesh and Blood’ in October 2019.

My PhD uses Critical and Creative Writing to address four questions:

  1. What metaphors are used by doctors and patients when communicating about foetal death?
  2. Is there a conflict between the way obstetricians imagine and describe foetal death and the way that women experience it?
  3. How are parental-foetal relationships represented or denied through these metaphors?
  4. How might these representations inform medical understanding of grief and maternal mental health?
