The Original Food for Thought

How does an impassioned, determined health professional, who is not a professional writer, pen an engaging and informative self-help book for the wider community?

Hear Rowena Gray and her co-author (and mother) Anne Hillis discuss the challenges of turning their expertise and passion for their subject into a book that had to find just the right balance between sharing professional knowledge and engaging with a diverse readership on a subject fraught with emotion and opinion – breastfeeding.

Born to Breastfeed has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from health professionals and new mums, and has become ‘recommended reading’ with Childbirth Educators around Australia. The foreword, by dietitian Dr Joanna McMillan, predicts it will become “the feeding bible for all new mothers”.

Behind this positive response, however, lies an instructive writing and editing challenge for everyone with a story to tell or knowledge to share.

Facilitated by author Brad Collis.
