For many women, breastfeeding isn't truly an option.
That's because many of them are discharged from hospital with forceful techniques and breastfeeding "education" that's out-of-date and inconsistent.
Evidence shows these methods can lead to painful nipple trauma and other complications that derail a woman's determination to breastfeed.
The Thompson Method provided me with education and guidance for my pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding that none of my medical providers (OBs, Nurses, Lactation Consultants, etc) did. With what I learned from The Thompson Method, I had the confidence to advocate for myself and my baby through the entire process. As a result, I have had the perfect experience, the experience I had always imagined and dreamed of. - Bianca
The Thompson Method breastfeeding program has changed my life! I was not successful breastfeeding my first 2 but this time I am. My baby girl has been [exclusively breastfed] for 3 months now. - Jessica
I can say with 100% confidence that The Thompson Method is what saved our breastfeeding journey. ... Breastfeeding went from one of the most stressful times in our house to one of the most coveted, peaceful times and everyone was able to relax. Now my daughter is 19 months old and we're still going strong!- Rebecca K.
The Thompson Method can work for every mother and baby.
backed by research.
"If we get women feeling confident and capable with their first two breastfeeds, it sets women up for successful breastfeeding for the next six months. And that's what we're doing here with The Thompson Method."
