PBB was established in 1992 by our CEO Jane Palmer to offer childbirth education classes and later midwifery services to improve the experience of women and their families.
In 1999, www.pregnancy.com.au launched as a public health information website, providing a comprehensive source of well-known and up-to-date information and support throughout pregnancy, birth and parenting. We aim to make it easy for you to be well informed. Choices matter.
In 2012, PBB established the first Midwifery and Medical Centre in Australia. The centre, known as the PBB Health Centre, combined midwifery and medical services. A unique and innovative venture aimed at providing holistic midwifery and family medical care.
In 2017, we sold the PBB Health Centre. We moved into our current warehouse in North Parramatta, which offers plenty of space to grow and allows easy access for customers collecting their orders. Major Change Due to the Australian advertising law surrounding registered health professionals, we had to make the heart-rending decision to stop providing health services in 2018 and underwent a company restructure.
This restructuring allows us to continue writing extensively about all issues facing expectant and new parents and promote families’ choices. Our website now contains over 2000 pages (and is still growing). It‘s a popular site that helps parents make well-informed decisions about their children throughout pregnancy, birth and the first months of a baby’s life.
On ‘PBB’s ever-growing website, you’ll find extensive information developed by our dedicated team of writers about everything from pre-conception to postnatal care and how to parent gently and effectively. Even better, we have a directory of hospitals, birth centres and waterbirth facilities across Australia, improving your access to information.
