The i Paper 

I write regularly for The i Paper, contributing opinion pieces and features both online and in print. These typically cover under-reported areas of women’s health, as well as other health and social issues.

I reported on HRT shortages for The i in July 2019, a month before other mainstream outlets picked up the story.

I have also reported for them on a range of medical research – including the ‘dementia gender gap‘, gender bias in heart attack care, and the role vaginal bacteria could play in cancer prevention.

Besides research and other health news, I regularly feature case studies highlighting women’s personal experiences of lesser known and stigmatised health conditions.


It’s always such a pleasure to commission and edit Sarah’s work. She just gets it. She is a clean writer who gets brilliant interviews and case studies. Sarah is both reliable and creative.

Women's Health magazine

Women who are otherwise bossing life are having their careers, fitness goals and sex lives scuppered by the perimenopause. Never heard of it? Exactly.

For October 2018’s Women’s Health magazine, I reported on the hormonal headwind that no one sees coming. Featuring an interview with Women’s Health Editor-in-Chief Claire Sanderson – whose own experiences inspired the commission – as well as other women’s personal experiences, and expert information and advice from menopause specialists.


Sarah is a dream freelancer to work with. She’s always full of incredible (publication-relevant) ideas, finds brilliant interviewees, and writes engaging and empathetic copy about complex and often sensitive subjects. Sarah is a journalist you can truly rely on. I can’t recommend her highly enough for lifestyle commissions – particularly those related to women’s health and mental health.
