Medical Humanities

In 2018 I received a distinction for an MSc in Medical Humanities at King’s College London and will be starting a PhD in October 2019.

My 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.
