In her 45 years as a midwife, Dr Robyn Thompson has had the privilege to observe thousands of mothers and babies breastfeeding, particularly in the important first 72 hours after birth.
"Women were coming to see me, some with horrific nipple damage, only hours or days after being discharged from hospital and I wanted to know why this was happening," says the passionate midwife. "And as a professional, I decided it was my responsibility to learn more."
"By sharing my knowledge and experience, my aim is to help prevent these complications in the first instance by informing women during pregnancy so that they can become more aware and empowered." - Dr Robyn Thompson
