As a freelance journalist specialising in science writing, this blog is designed to round up and comment on news and issues in the world of women’s health.
This blog started when as a student at Cardiff Journalism School I saw a gap in the market for reporting on some of the more political aspects of science.
The World Health Organisation’s 15andcounting.com blog have since described this blog as a blog “we love”:
‘Women’s Health Base is a blog by Hannah Flynn, a freelance journalist specialising in science. The author describes herself as “a former biologist and current feminist” and she covers the subjects of contraception, pregnancy, gynecological cancers, breast cancer, screening programmes, sexual health and education.

Publications I have worked on include:
