Your Baby, Your Body, Your Way...

Problems with breastfeeding are common.

With a hospital system that is overloaded and under pressure, combined with all the well-meaning people around you (who frankly, all have a different opinion) giving you advice (often unasked for) it is no wonder you may be feeling overwhelmed about your impending birth and breastfeeding journey.

The best news? It doesn’t have to be this way.

You have a whole support network waiting to walk by your side on your journey towards gentle, pain-free breastfeeding.

The World Has Radically Changed in The Last Few Years, And Expecting Mothers Are Feeling More Alone Than Ever…

With ongoing restrictions in place, it’s harder than ever for expecting mothers to build a supportive community around them during their pregnancy and breastfeeding journeys.

For many women, they’re confronted with the reality of attending appointments alone, while being bombarded with information, scary statistics, and a whole lot of pressure to do the “right” thing by their baby…

Unfortunately, our hospital systems do not offer the guidance and support women need at such a precious time in their lives (and it can be hard to find community and support when we’re so isolated from others).

That’s where we come in…

Here at the Thompson Method, we understand community matters in this special journey and that is why we designed the Beautiful Breastfeeding Program.

We’re proud to offer a range of personalized support options, both within your local community and online… so wherever you are in the world, you can access a safe, supportive space for you and your baby.

What Other Women Are Saying About The
Thompson Method

What Exactly is THE THOMPSON METHOD?

The Thompson Method is a gentle, evidence-based approach to breastfeeding, created by experienced midwife, Dr Robyn Thompson.

This method is gentle, supportive and nothing like the typically forceful techniques taught in many hospitals and prenatal classes around the world.

Not only is this method gentle, but we teach women how to prepare for breastfeeding BEFORE their baby is even born.

This means you have the opportunity to protect your first few special hours with your child and learn how to advocate for yourself AND your baby.

If you’re serious about breastfeeding your baby, avoiding painful nipple trauma and mastitis and you’d like to avoid reflux, colic and an unsettled baby, the Thompson Method can help.

The Thompson Method Review | The BEST breastfeeding experience for baby number 4

"Thanks to you feeding my 4th baby has been a breeze. I didn't get nipple damage. I never hurt once. They never even got tender. It has been the BEST breastfeeding experience during the first few weeks. Thank you."

Preparing for breastfeeding with flat nipples

"As someone with flat nipples I found that knowing how to prepare them in pregnancy, understanding how to gently work with my baby using the Thompson Method rather than forcing her to my breast, allowing her to follow her instincts to latch etc, helped her to feed well, avoid damage and pain, meant I didn’t feel the need to use shields (as I have seen others advised to do straight up before even trying without). I felt calm and confident when feeding my baby from the beginning, making it a positive and enjoyable experience from the start"💕

Breastfeeding at 10 months after a C-Section

""I wish I had known all of this before having my csection, especially the benefits of delayed cord clamping, which no one ever mentioned in my appointments. I put all my trust into the experts.

I did all I could for my daughter regardless, I cried so many times in hospital trying to get Claire to latch on and feed. But I'm so happy I found the Thompson Method which helped me keep going. We're not perfect with our feed schedule, but I am feeding almost 10 months down the track with no plans of stopping any time soon. I feel very proud to be able to breastfeed and persist, even when I was at one of my lowest points in motherhood.

Thank you Robyn, Jo and team for all you do. 💓💓💓"

Twin babies breastfeeding with no pain, after severe damage from previous 9 babies!

10 months in and proudly breastfeeding

"I gave birth to my first baby with an epidural given about 30 min before pushing. The drug barely had time to take effect properly but despite that, she slept a lot and would fall asleep on the breast right away. Nurses would then push with forceful techniques and I ended up with nipple trauma within 3 days and was overwhelmed and turned to formula. My second baby, i did a natural birth and had listened to countless hours of your videos for a gentler approach toward breastfeeding. I wanted to succeed so bad! I didn't want what happened the first time to happen again. So, I opted for natural birth, no interruptions for the first 5 hours after labour, and I kindly asked the nurses to let me be and if I needed help I'd ask. To this day, my son is 10 months and im still proudly breastfeeding him! Everything fell into place and was natural! Thank you infinitely for the knowledge you pass on every day ❤️ you played a huge role in our breastfeeding journey!"

The most successful breastfeeding journey so far THANK YOU

"Hi Dr Robyn, I just wanted to say a quick thankyou. Because of your amazing videos, advice and the information available, I have had the most successful breastfeeding baby since her first breastfeed. This is my third baby, and I had nipples that blistered, bled and scabbed with my first, terrible engorgement and reflux with my second and both babies were unsettled for the first few months. My new baby girl is so settled as I'm reading her cues, letting her feed until she is ready to unlatch herself, and other than the slight initial nipple soreness my nipples are feeling great. So once again thank you for this service."

First baby feeding so well after an emergency C-Section

"Thank you so much to Dr Robyn and Joanne Thompson for this course. I had my baby boy on Monday via an emergency c-section. The midwives on the ward are amazed this is my first baby and we are feeding so well. I know that without your research and the course, it would be a whole different story! I feel confident with my breastfeeding journey and appreciate the support you both continue to provide in the private group. THANKS!"

Emergency C-Section and a successful first breastfeed

“Hi Robyn. I gave birth to my son by emergency Caesarian yesterday. I completed your online course beforehand and was so desperate to have a successful first feed. Despite the setback of a c-section we still managed to have a successful first feed thanks to what I learnt from you and I am so grateful to you for this so thankyou”

No tongue-tie issues breastfeeding and no nipple shield needed

“I just delivered my son at 37 weeks and he ended up having to be rushed straight to the NICU. He wasn’t able to feed for the first 24 hours and by the time he could, it wasn’t perfect. However, this program gave me the confidence, knowledge and patience to work with him to get it right. Out of pure curiosity, I did end up meeting with the hospital lactation consultant who, to my horror, IMMEDIATELY informed me my son had a tongue tie that needed to be fixed, said I would HAVE to use a shield with him and then tried to have me grab the back of his head and shove him on me. No! I politely thanked her and asked her to give me some time. She came back today in disbelief that he has fed repeatedly with no shield, no tongue tie issues and is getting fully satisfied each time. Rest and digest for the win! Thank you Thompson Method!”

Our breastfeeding journey is already 1000x better than out my last four

“I am SO excited! SO EXCITED!! I actually WANT to breastfeed my baby after birth. She’s a little over 24hrs old, and our breastfeeding journey is already 1,000x better than my last four. By this time I usually had cracked and bleeding nipples, but thanks to The Thompson Method, it is painless and inviting. Things are going amazingly and she latches like a champion all on her own.”

- Natalie W.
