What mothers have to say about The Thompson Method, the foundation of Beautiful Breastfeeding...

 
‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ

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 continue to provide in the private group.

- Amanda J.

‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ

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.

Happy baby thriving on mother's milk - 5 star review for breastfeeding experience
‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ

It's so scary to be a first time mom,. You have to worry about pregnancy, labor, delivery and everything else that comes after that. But having the knowledge from the Thompson Method has made my breastfeeding journey amazing!
I am now 4 months [exclusively breastfeeding] and breastfeeding has been by far the most enjoyable part of being a mom.

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‚ÄĒall 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.
