My name is Becca Selby and I am a second-year undergraduate at the University of Manchester. I study Biology with Science and society, which is a fascinating degree programme that combines the study of biology with units from the history of science, technology and medicine, or HSTM, department.

I started this website as a place for me to work on my writing primarily and to share my thoughts and ideas on various subjects and research interests.

Research areas that hold a particular interest for me are those related to parenting. This includes things like reproductive health, childbirth, infant feeding and parenting methodologies.

“Well it never did you any harm” – every parent that I have ever met, my own included.
