Kelly's story from tongue tie, sore nipples to breastfeeding for 2 years
"I had successfully breastfed my previous 5 and then had significant challenges with my 6th. Complete refusal to latch, low weight gain, low supply, tongue tie, just to name to a few. I was using bottles, nipple shields, SNS feeding systems, I was a total mess with cracked bleeding nipples.
I tried everything and everyone, including 3 different lactation consultants, private midwives, ECH nurse, tongue tie clinic. Not one person could help. I was literally looking at a can of formula with tears in my eyes.
Within 3 weeks of learning from Dr Robyn my son was exclusively breastfeeding from both breasts pain free. I am not saying it was easy in those 3 weeks, but if it wasn’t for Dr Robyn, Joanne Thompson and the amazing team I wouldn’t still be breastfeeding 1 year later 💞💞"
Kelly goes on to say that she wished she knew about Dr Robyn's antenatal classes, which are designed to help women reduce the risk of complications with their labour, birth and breastfeeding.

Update: "We just hit 2 years of breastfeeding and as well as saying thank you to Dr Robyn I would also like to say a huge thank you to all the amazing and beautiful ladies of the breastfeeding club.
There have been times in the last year where the sleep deprivation kicked in that comes along with looking after 6 children, working, studying the list goes on that I nearly came close to stopping. However I read all your amazing posts which have been and continue to be inspiring, this along with my chunky monkey asking for his “minkies” kept me going, so thank you
