I am investigating embodied experiences of miscarriage by writing creative non-fiction & studying contemporary novels.

Dr Sabina Dosani is a medically-qualified doctoral researcher in Creative and Critical Writing at the University of East Anglia. Her work is funded through the AHRC’s CHASE consortium. Sabina’s interests are in the interdisciplinary medical humanities. She uses research methods from disciplines such as art, literature, drama and creative writing to help develop nuanced understanding of experiences of illness and healthcare, and to critically examine systems of care.
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. The latter investigates how accounts of obstetric ultrasound in contemporary fiction and creative non-fiction can illuminate understanding of women’s relationships with their unborn babies. I am particularly interested in how the language women use differs radically from the language of obstetrics.
