Farifteh V. Robb

Farifteh Robb (nee Hafezi) BA, MSc, PhD, began her career as an academic in Iran before re-training as a nurse and midwife in the UK. Born in Switzerland and raised as a Muslim in a Persian family, she has lived in Europe and the Middle East. She was baptized in Tehran during the final years of the Shah’s reign and survived both the Islamic Revolution and its aftermath. Her subsequent move to Britain and marriage to a Scottish doctor have enabled her to embrace a new life greatly enhanced by her intimate connection with two cultures, two religions, and two very different professions. She now lives in Edinburgh with her husband and has four grown-up children.
