from our listeners.
Hi Ladies, Just wanted to say a job well done! Loving the show, though I mostly listen to it by podcast. Wonderful collection of interviewees and information to share with the ladies I teach Prenatal and Mums and Bubs yoga to in Murwillumbah and Cabarita beach. The interview with Dr Oscar Serrallach on postnatal depletion is an absolute favourite. I find myself directing other women working on postnatal mummies to his work and research. - Listener
It was such a clear and concise podcast! The information is well presented and I really like how in both part one and part two you insert voice clips that really add to what you are saying. This is so relevant for every single pregnant woman! Thank you! I have written a blog on my page and have included a link to part one and part two! Thank you for your wonderful podcasts! - Natalie
I loved your podcast - part one As Long as the Baby is Healthy. Just wondering when part two will be released?” - Listener

Thank YOU for your work because people like you have really gotten me interested in this work (and seeing) there's communities, knowledge, databases. If it weren't for people like you this would have been a fleeting thing for me... Like for a lot of parents it's like "My God what was that tunnel I just went through" and then you just kind of get on with your life. So thank you for the work you do, and I think together we can make the world a better place.
Thanks Sally - you are doing a great job ab making information accessible to women and families. - Dr Kirsten Small, BMedSc, MBBS, OB/GYN
You are doing a fabulous job at getting information 'out there' for women and their families Sally! what an inspiration you are. - Carolyn Hastie, Practice Lecturer at Griffith University
The team behind this program have been very willing to further develop the presentation and production, taking on extensive feedback from the Community Radio Network to ensure a high standard of communication and accessibility. The subject matter is not covered by other CRN programming and presents a worthy alternative to the coverage of related subject matter by major media outlets. CRN is also pleased to be growing the amount of female-presented talks content and small station-originating content in the overall mix. - Martin Walters Manager of Community Radio Network, Australia

My team and I collaborated with Sally from PBB Media to present PBB Talks: A Close Look at Informed Consent and PBB Talks: Waterbirth for VBAC at Gold Coast University Hospital in 2018.
PBB Media's involvement in this event presented an exciting opportunity for our organisation to reach out to the general public, maternity service users, and academic and professional colleagues from outside Griffith/GCUH.
As far as producing the event goes, for our part it was extremely easy. Sally and her team saw to all the details of programming, staging and marketing the event. And we were really happy to be a part of such an engaging, woman-centred community event.
I would recommend collaborating with the committed team at PBB Media to any organisation who wants to reach out further to their local community and wider audiences. Thank you PBB Media!
