I am writing a memoir, Flesh and Blood, about my experience of recurrent miscarriage while working as a medical expert witness in the family court, (Mslexia Memoir Awards Longlist, 2021) and a critical essay, Products of Conception, Imaging and Imagining the Maternal Foetal Relationship.

I am particularly interested in how the language women use differs radically from the language of obstetrics.
