Esther's Story 💕
“I always considered myself to be a strong, independent woman but I was left feeling completely vulnerable in the hospital system. Lots of different perspectives on what to do and they recommended going on formula. I’m so fortunate to be able to say that I’ve breastfeed my daughter for 15 months. And I have Robyn to thank for that.”

Why would The Thompson Method work, when nothing else has?
The Thompson Method is a new, gentle approach that is backed by research and that challenges commonly taught forceful techniques. This proven method helps women overcome pain, stress and overwhelm, even in the presence of existing painful and stressful complications.
It’s likely to be quite opposite to what you will be taught (or have been taught) in most hospitals, and it works! Thanks to the research, knowledge and experience behind The Thompson Method, women are reclaiming their power so that they can breastfeed their babies for as long as they choose.

Meken G ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"Robyn has been an absolute saviour for me. I've battled with feeding from the get go and after seeing 3 LC's in hospital and a private home visiting LC Robyn has been the only person who has made a difference. I'm not out of the woods yet but Robyn has been so generous with her time that its just a matter of time. She is so knowledgeable and so so supportive. What i would do to go back in time and stock up on her information before birth."
Elle M ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"I wish I had known all of this before having my csection, especially the benefits of delayed cord clamping, which no one ever mentioned in my appointments. I put all my trust into the experts.
I did all I could for my daughter regardless, I cried so many times in hospital trying to get Claire to latch on and feed. But I'm so happy I found the Thompson Method which helped me keep going. We're not perfect with our feed schedule, but I am feeding almost 10 months down the track with no plans of stopping any time soon. I feel very proud to be able to breastfeed and persist, even when I was at one of my lowest points in motherhood.
Thank you Robyn, Jo and team for all you do. 💓💓💓"
Sarah W ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"My Mila is 14 days old, we have had what you could call a painful teary first two weeks, Robyn had us feeding from the boob on our first appointment. We had seen 2 Lactation Consultants, the tongue Tie specialist, a cranial osteo & were disappointed. Robyn you are a special person & we love you. We still have a way to go but I know now we WILL get there... forever grateful 💖"
Brooke W ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"I’d say that the consultation with Robyn was worth every penny. I figured it was cheaper than therapy (!!!) and formula in the long run and I REALLY wanted to feed this time around.
I’d also say that take it one feed at a time like Robyn always says and try not to overthink it or put too much pressure on yourself. If you need help ask - yes breastfeeding is natural but it isn’t always easy!!"
Kelly F ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"I am working one on one with Robyn at the minute. After successfully breastfeeding 5 babies, I thought that when baby no 6 came along it would be a breeze. How wrong was i, he had trouble with latching etc, I spent thousands on LC’s, private nurses, free help lines, midwives, tongue tie clinic(which I deeply regret, as it caused my poor baby more issues) after 2 weeks of working with Robyn, I am successfully breastfeeding my baby, I was about to give up and in total despair, Robyn was my saviour, her knowledge, expertise, kindness and compassion got me through my darkest days when I was on the verge of giving up and feeling like a totally failure. If you have issues, talk to Robyn ASAP, she really is amazing....and like Robyn always says “trust your instincts and you can do this”
Sarah G ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"Just wanted to post to say thank you sooooo much! I was lucky enough to be able to have 2 face to face appointments with Robyn as well as a few FaceTime appointments and A LOT of msgs!
When I started seeing Dr Robyn my confidence was super low. My nipples incredibly damaged and I was supplementing with formula a lot more often than I wanted to. My right nipple had a split in it and my left was raw skin due to being inverted originally and now everted. I was ready to quit and the Thompson method was my last chance.
I can happily say that Harry is now 11 weeks old and my right nipple is pretty much healed! I used a nipple shield on Robyn’s recommendation and slowly reduced the use. I’m now using it on my Left and gradually watching that heal also. Harry is down to one night time bottle of formula which I am slowly decreasing!
Thank you both so much for everything. I would have stopped weeks ago if it wasn’t for you!!"
Tamika O ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"Just wanted to take a moment to show my appreciation to Dr Robyn and her daughter Jo. Through their support and expert guidance I was able to overcome many obstacles like multiple bouts of mastitis, the use of nipple shields and nipple trauma. I am now feeding my son pain free and we both couldn’t be happier 💙Anyone considering doing the breastfeeding rescue it is the best decision I’ve made so far as a mother and absolutely worth it. My only regret is that I wished I had done it sooner as I would have saved myself some tears."
Maggie S ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"I want to give Dr. Robyn a HUGE thank you!!! My son just turned 1 year old on this past Monday and we are still successfully breastfeeding thanks to your help at about the 1 month mark. Our journey started with him just SCREAMING at the breast until I just had to give him a bottle, sometimes up to 20 minutes of screaming. Then, with your help, we transitioned to fully on the breast! With the exception of bottles at daycare, he only gets the breast at home. He's off course eating solids (and loving it) but he's still a booby boy. I know the time is quickly approaching where he won't want to nurse so I am staying thankful got every day we get at this point. THANK YOU Dr. Robyn, I think I would've given up if it hadn't been for your help!!!"
Charlotte R. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Breastfeeding Rescue Program saved our breastfeeding. I was lucky enough to have a really good labour experience with minimal intervention, so I thought I had got through the hardest part of having a newborn. Little did I know that breastfeeding was going to be our biggest challenge. After six weeks of trying and trying to get my little man on the breast and not being successful, I found Robyn. Joining this group and reading about Robyn's experience and research I knew that I had found someone who could help me. Talking to Jo confirmed this for me and I quickly joined the Breastfeeding Rescue Program and had my consult with Robyn the next day. I was blown away with how quickly we saw improvement, during the consult I had my little man feeding for the first time. Robyn gave me the confidence and advice to succeed with our breastfeeding journey and I am happy to say that I am exclusively breastfeeding and am so happy. A big thank you to Robyn, Jo and team for helping me.
Lauren L ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I had never successfully breastfed any of my other 2 children past the first few days so I was determined to breastfeed my daughter Lola for as long as I possibly could. I found Robyn by chance when Lola was 5 months old after someone posted that she was searching for mums who were struggling to feed babies with tongue ties. I had already had my daughters tie corrected a week or so before but was still having issues. I met with dr Robyn and her team and it was the start of everything happening so beautifully and naturally when it came to breastfeeding. They were always there for me when I needed them for support and any little issues arose. I wish I had known about the Thompson Method from the very start! Still breastfeeding Lola at 14 months now and no stopping us ❤️❤️❤️
Kate M ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I worked 1-1, she was amazing, I can not recommend her enough! I’m just stopping feeding now and my baby is 11 months old on Sunday ❤️ I never thought I’d get this far! Thank you 😊😊😊
