Breastfeeding is natural, so why do so many women struggle with it?
Inconsistent, conflicting information and forceful breastfeeding techniques being taught in the hospital system often result in pain for many experienced and first time mothers.
Women often share stories of how they were told that they need to do better by the hospital system, leaving them feeling like a failure who can’t provide the nourishment her baby needs.
With over 45 years experience as a midwife and a PhD in breastfeeding, Dr Robyn Thompson's gentle method helps women reduce the risk of breastfeeding complications, encouraging them to trust their natural instincts.
