The best time to focus on breastfeeding is before your baby arrives.


Three good reasons to skip past "wait and see"...

Postpartum can be overwhelming.

Adding a tiny one to your life is a big transition! You'll be navigating new normals and learning so much on the fly. By learning to breastfeed now, you'll be able to enjoy the journey instead of worrying through it.

You'll soon have less free time.

It's no secret that newborns require time and energy—all of which are in short supply in those early days and weeks. Use the "extra" time you have now to grow your knowledge and confidence.

Early complications can derail breastfeeding.

Mothers who experience complications in the early hours and days of breastfeeding are more likely to give up before they want to. With advance preparation, you're less likely to experience those complications.

"Cannot recommend this course more!"

I bought this program before we were even pregnant, as preparation for breastfeeding. Little did I realise that the course is actually an entire suite of prenatal and birth classes... It empowered me to know what to expect during the last trimester, labour, birth, straight after birth, coming home and feeding the baby at different ages.

As a result of the videos I watched I was confident to make a decision about what I knew was right and to stand up for my instinct and decisions. Cannot recommend more.

"It's the best thing I did."

After searching for breastfeeding help I had come across many that lacked substance and cost the earth. I almost didn't bother looking into the Thompson Method course as it seemed too cheap. But I'm so glad I did. The breastfeeding support is so personal and effective, but before I even got to that stage, the in-depth labour and birthing information and extensive birth plan provided, made me realise I had made the best decision I could have.

If I could, I would do whatever I could to assure every mumma that they would get amazing benefit from the Thompson Method and they should jump in with both feet. It's the best thing I did.

MORE TESTIMONIALS

Although it’s difficult to acknowledge —

Many hospital systems work against a woman's ability to successfully breastfeed her baby. 

Forceful Techniques
The go-to breastfeeding guidance from hospitals is often forceful, out of date, and inconsistent, which can lead to painful nipple trauma and derail a woman’s determination to breastfeed.

The Cascade of Intervention
In the name of efficiency (read: profit), hospitals are too quick to unnecessarily intervene before and during labour… putting mothers and babies at risk of additional interventions… which can make it difficult to establish breastfeeding from the start.

Mother-Baby Separation
Hospitals rush to conduct unnecessary routine procedures immediately after birth, which separates mother and baby, often interrupting the precious window of opportunity for skin-to-skin contact and the first breastfeed—The 3 Golden Hours.

Forceful breastfeeding techniques taught in hospital

The Thompson Method is the breastfeeding education you and your baby deserve.

Learn the gentle, natural approach and have permission to trust your instincts, your body,
and your baby through the birthing process and beyond.
