Amazing source of credible information

Each Podcast is so informative, with experienced and qualified individuals coming together to share their knowledge and ideas. Information is presented in an easy to understand way, and the right questions are asked to get informative answers. Always look forward to the next episode arriving.

Great content, but audio is lacking

It’s so awesome to have an Australian fertility podcast, and Dr Raelia is really informative and easy to listen to. Unfortunately the audio quality of some episodes, especially Jordi’s sections, is really poor. There’s also a fair bit of ‘dead air’ with long pauses between questions/answers.
