After struggling with breastfeeding after a C Section for her first 2 babies, Joanne's experience for her third was a dream. 

All three babies have been C-Sections and I’ve had problems breastfeeding my previous two babies.  And this time it’s just been a dream.  I always doubted myself.  Being my third baby, I thought I had nothing to lose by getting this information and it’s probably the best thing I’ve done so far.” 

~ Joanne


 

Zanna never understood why so many women gave up breastfeeding, until she went through it. 


“When I stumbled across The Thompson Method, I couldn’t believe how different it was to what I’d been shown in hospital.  It was amazing.  I was bracing myself for it and when it didn’t hurt, wow!  Who knew it could feel so good?” 

~ Zanna


 

Pamela first discovered The Thompson Method when she was expecting her third set of twins! 

 The Thompson Method Review
“When I started looking into the Thompson Method, it was different to what I had ever known.  My babies made the transition into the world smoothly and seamlessly jumped into breastfeeding and were able to avoid a lot of trouble this time.” 

~ Pamela

 

Erica was finally able to breastfeed baby number 3, after not being able to breastfeed her first two using The Thompson Method Breastfeeding Program.

“It’s the kind of thing that you’d rather purchase and not need it, than not purchase and then need it, because it’s so informative.  Breastfeeding for the first time, it’s really helped me out with my baby.” 

~ Erica


 

Gillian left the hospital with extremely sore and scabbed and bleeding nipples and was in a world of pain.

“I’m happy to say that after a few weeks of the support and encouragement, we have resolved all issues with the latch.  My baby is 8 weeks old and is thriving.  We have 100% come through the side, and we’re enjoying our breastfeeding experience and it’s all thanks to Robyn and her team.”

~ Gillian


 

After a challenging birth, Emily felt so overwhelmed with hospital staff using forceful breastfeeding techniques with her baby. 

 

“If I didn’t have the Thompson Method, I don’t think I’d be exclusively breastfeeding at 4 months.  Robyn’s program and her support always got me back on track and now I trust my instincts and I love breastfeeding.  It’s the best feeling I’ve had in my life.”

~ Emily


 

After an unexpected C Section, Esther followed the principles of The Thompson Method and was able to breastfeed her baby til 15 months.

“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.”

~ Esther

 

After being told over and over again that she has low milk supply, Sarah was doubting herself and had lost all confidence.

“Just knowing that he’s getting the right nourishment makes me the happiest.  That special one on one time with him, it’s so special.  Having confidence in my ability to breastfeed, with the support is just amazing.  I would say, what a small investment for what you get.  It’s invaluable.  Just do it.”

~ Sarah


 

Bec had tried a lot of conventional breastfeeding methods to increase her breast milk supply with little success.  For her third baby at 5 weeks, she hasn’t had to pump once.

“Being pregnant with baby number three, I thought history would repeat itself and maybe I just didn’t have enough milk to feed my baby.  I wouldn’t be in the position I am now, exclusively breastfeeding my son now at 5 weeks, if it wasn’t for Robyn and the program and I haven’t had to pump once.”

~ Bec

 

After painful breastfeeding, that included nipple shields, Anna would start to feel anxious as the next breastfeed approached until she discovered The Thompson Method

“It’s more natural and I look forward to breastfeeding and there’s no more pain involved. Overall I just feel more comfortable and confident in everything that we do, and I know that we have support if any issues arise

~ Anna


 

As a midwife, Casey felt prepared for breastfeeding.  But after enduring 6 weeks of painful nipples when breastfeeding, she discovered The Thompson Method and was still breastfeeding at 10 months.

“I thought I knew everything about breastfeeding and thought it would just work itself out.  Every feed was painful.  My nipples were grazed and sore and I couldn’t work out what was going on.  Now, as nurse and midwife, I want to help other women and put Robyn’s method out there.”

~ Casey


 

The forceful breastfeeding techniques shown to this first time mum Fenella resulted in painful nipples, stress, breast refusal and her baby girl being bottle fed formula by the time she was discharged.

 

"They instilled fear in me that she was dehydrated and hungry and so I ended up being so frightened that I gave her formula, which broke me. The only thing that kept me going was to know that I had The Thompson Method under my belt and I could just turn this all around when I got home.”

~ Fenella

After 3 LCs in hospital and a home visit, Dr Robyn has been the only one who made a difference

"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.

"How special is this moment, a moment I will never forget" | The Thompson Method Reviews

"My husband took this picture. A moment caught in time. My baby feeding from my breast as we relaxed in a warm bath. I was looking at him thinking ‘wow, how special is this moment, a moment I will never forget’. I couldn’t help but go on to think ‘thank God I found the Breastfeeding Program and Dr Robyn, without the Breastfeeding Program and working with Dr Robyn I would never have had this moment’. You see, by the time my baby was 4 weeks old I wasn’t breastfeeding anymore, I was formula feeding, overfeeding, expressing for hours on end, taking medication and in a very stressed state of mind. Dr Robyn & the Breastfeeding Program turned that around for me, and as we lie there in our purest form, as Mother Nature intended, I felt such gratitude for the incredible work of Dr Robyn & her program 💝"


Breastfeeding Correct Latch

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Jessica R 

Preparing for breastfeeding with flat nipples

"As someone with flat nipples I found that knowing how to prepare them in pregnancy, understanding how to gently work with my baby using the Thompson Method rather than forcing her to my breast, allowing her to follow her instincts to latch etc, helped her to feed well, avoid damage and pain, meant I didn’t feel the need to use shields (as I have seen others advised to do straight up before even trying without).

I felt calm and confident when feeding my baby from the beginning, making it a positive and enjoyable experience from the start"💕

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Elle M

The Thompson Method Reviews | Breastfeeding at 10 months after a C-Section

"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. 💓💓💓"

Natural birth, 3 Golden Hours and 10 months in and proudly breastfeeding | The Thompson Method Breastfeeding Reviews

"I gave birth to my first baby with an epidural given about 30 min before pushing. The drug barely had time to take effect properly but despite that, she slept a lot and would fall asleep on the breast right away. Nurses would then push with forceful techniques and I ended up with nipple trauma within 3 days and was overwhelmed and turned to formula. My second baby, i did a natural birth and had listened to countless hours of your videos for a gentler approach toward breastfeeding. I wanted to succeed so bad! I didn't want what happened the first time to happen again. So, I opted for natural birth, no interruptions for the first 5 hours after labour, and I kindly asked the nurses to let me be and if I needed help I'd ask. To this day, my son is 10 months and im still proudly breastfeeding him! Everything fell into place and was natural! Thank you infinitely for the knowledge you pass on every day ❤️ you played a huge role in our breastfeeding journey!"


Breastfeeding Engorgement Reflux

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Danielle T 

The Thompson Method Reviews | The most successful breastfeeding journey so far THANK YOU

"Hi Dr Robyn, I just wanted to say a quick thankyou. Because of your amazing videos, advice and the information available, I have had the most successful breastfeeding baby since her first breastfeed. This is my third baby, and I had nipples that blistered, bled and scabbed with my first, terrible engorgement and reflux with my second and both babies were unsettled for the first few months. My new baby girl is so settled as I'm reading her cues, letting her feed until she is ready to unlatch herself, and other than the slight initial nipple soreness my nipples are feeling great. So once again thank you for this service."

Breastfeeding after c section. "The Midwives were amazed" 

"Thank you so much to Dr Robyn and Joanne Thompson for this course. 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 both continue to provide in the private group. THANKS!"

Pain-Free Breastfeeding

Michaela     ⭐⭐⭐⭐

"I was struggling emotionally and physically with breastfeeding after the birth of my child. Every feed was excruciating due to terrible nipple damage and I was becoming anxious each time my baby was due to feed.

Robyn was so kind and supportive to me during this time. She explained simple methods and helped me understand the anatomy of a good attachment so I could better problem solve on my own.

She taught me techniques and together we created a plan. Because of Robyn's support I felt encouraged to persevere and had hope that I could achieve pain free breastfeeding. And I did! I am so grateful for Robyn, she was my breastfeeding angel!"

"This is not your typical success story but it's my success story.  I'm currently standing here typing with my nearly 15 week old son nestled asleep against me in the carrier and as I look at him I so wish he was still breastfeeding but unfortunately he won't anymore.  Hold on.....keep reading.  This is DEFINITELY a success story and I'd like to share this because success can take different forms and I believe it's important that we celebrate that the path can be different for different people.

Doing the Thompson Method online course and having the support available meant that I was able to have a wonderful birth and feeding experience I may have otherwise missed out on.  I was also able to feed my son exclusively for the first weeks of his life which I was not able to do with my first child.  
Doing this course enabled me to find my voice as a mum to be able to effectively advocate for my needs and those of my son for the birth.  The first time around I had no skin to skin contact and was then separated from my daughter for the first hour and 15 minutes for staffing reasons.   I was highly anxious and after a very long labour that resulted in emergency c-section I was exhausted.  I was in pain as I fed and in utter confusion in the first days with my precious daughter as I tried to feed her with the mixed information given to me by well-meaning staff.  There was the pressure to give formula and I felt I was an observer in my daughter's situation as I didn't have a strong voice to express what we wanted or needed. 

This time around, after doing the course, I found a powerful voice and knew what we wanted.  I was able to ensure that despite having to have another c-section that I had immediate, uninterrupted and extended skin to skin contact.  I felt empowered to speak up and take the lead in the birth and feeding experience.  As a result this birth was immensely healing for me and the days following were euphoric as I fed my son with confidence.   

Unfortunately for me due to uncontrollable and unavoidable circumstances I was not able to continue to feed past 8 weeks but this is far better than with my daughter.  In addition I fed without pain, I looked forward to feeding as opposed to dreading it the way I had with my daughter.  I watched my son feed and I cried tears of joy at the feeling of feeding.  I cherished each feed with my son and I will be forever grateful that I did the course felt so prepared and supported and therefore was able to create a different path for birth and feeding this time around.  The course was amazing as was the Facebook group with Dr Robyn being so responsive, informative and encouraging.  Thank you Dr Robyn and team!"

Take it one feed at a time

"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!!"

Jharna H     ⭐⭐⭐⭐  

"I started doing Dr Robyn’s course when I was about 24 weeks pregnant after stumbling across it online. We had made a deliberate decision to not read all of the parenting books etc, but I knew that breastfeeding could be a real challenge so thought that was the main thing I should educate myself on.

I worked through all of the video modules while still pregnant (and then watched a few key ones for revision again towards the end) and they were a wealth of information - not just in breastfeeding, but on birth and all it encompasses. I felt empowered, knowledgeable and capable of succeeding

My beautiful girl arrived five days ago and while her arrival took a scary turn and ended up being quite traumatic, I had the knowledge and ability to get my breastfeeding journey off on the right foot despite the challenges we faced. 

What I discovered is that there is a CONSTANT parade of people coming through your room after birth - giving you leaflets on all manner of things. It is information overload and I personally found I could not take in very much of it. This confirmed to me that the best time to commence your breastfeeding education is while you are pregnant and still have the ability to take all of that information in! You also receive SO MUCH conflicting advice from every different person who enters the room. It’s best to be confident and secure in your knowledge before bub comes so you can feel strong enough to make your own choices. 

I would highly recommend that every pregnant woman complete the online breastfeeding course.  It’s definitely worth the investment."

On the verge of giving up breastfeeding until I discovered The Thompson Method | Dr Robyn Thompson Reviews

"I am working one on one with Dr Robyn Thompson 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 Dr Robyn Thompson, 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”

"I am confident I would not still be breastfeeding my now four month old son, had a friend not recommended the Thompson Method.   

He was five weeks old at the time, and breastfeeding was becoming increasingly more painful for me.   I felt very strongly about continuing to breastfeed, but didn’t know the cause of the pain or how to correct it.

I made contact through the website and was able to arrange a skype consultation with Robyn.   It was great to speak to someone with so much experience, as well as such a passion for babies and breastfeeding.   She was able to work out a plan for us and give us so much valuable information.

Having Robyn’s help in this emotionally and physically demanding newborn phase was amazing.   She empowered me with both the knowledge and encouragement I needed in a very difficult time.   As a result, Wilson & I are successfully continuing on our breastfeeding journey together."

Lauren & Charlie   ⭐⭐⭐⭐  
We did it! Baby #2, Charlotte AKA Charlie, is here! She came naturally at 37+6 weeks and I didn’t let anyone touch her, measure her, or take any standard interventions until we had our time together. She immediately nursed for an hour on each side with no assistance from me other than keeping my elbow back and supporting her with my forearm. I can absolutely not believe the instincts that she had - as you promised! 

Lactation consultants at the hospital actually said to me, “You really know what you’re doing!” I said, “No, she knows what she’s doing!” We left the hospital after 24 hours with no nipple trauma, no crying from me, no forcing my brand new baby to take an aggressive mouthful of breast that she didn’t want. This experience truly because of your course. THANK YOU!!

We had a weigh-in and at 7 days she had returned to birth weight and at two weeks post-delivery, she gained 15 ounces in just 7 days! Quite the piglet!

 Nursing has been an experience I never thought I could have. Thank goodness I found you.  

Hugs,

Lauren (and Charlie!)

Split Nipple

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Sarah G 

I would have stopped breastfeeding weeks ago. Thank you so much | Dr Robyn Thompson Reviews

"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!!"

Kelly F     ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Ok ladies, I am writing this post as I sit and reflect on the journey that I started back in June with Dr Robyn, Joanne Thompson, and all the team and hope that if there is anybody who is pregnant and contemplating doing the The Thompson Method course, or is struggling with breastfeeding and considering doing a rescue with Robyn, my story might just help them to take the plunge and give the Thompson Method ago.

My 6th baby, Jacob, came literally "flying" into the world back in May, after successfully breastfeeding my 5 other children, I thought I knew pretty much everything there was to know, I couldn't have been more wrong. My problems began whilst still in hospital(I didn't know that then) from not getting the 3 golden hours to being rushed to get showered and moved to another ward.

My nipples were pretty much damaged before I left the hospital after only 24 hours. Once I was home things quickly spiralled down hill for the worse, Jacob started to take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours to latch, to completely refusing to latch, he would scream the entire time and I would cry silently beside him, thinking that I was the worst Mum. I had cracked bleeding nipples, I was engorged and mentally I was not in a good place, and worst of all Jacob was not gaining any weight.

I quickly got in touch with my midwife, then lactation consultant x2, ECHC nurse(no body could help) then most regretfully a tongue tie clinic, where unfortunately(for our personal journey) we had his tongue snipped, they however damaged his tongue and impacted our breastfeeding journey further. As a nurse myself, this is still hard for me to deal with and accept still.

By this point I was literally pumping every 2 hours, I was trying to use a SNS feeding system, I was topping up from a bottle with expressed milk, I was trying to use nipple shields and I was hours away from the heartbreaking decision to quit breastfeeding, this was heart wrenching for me as I knew that Jacob was my last baby.

It was midnight one saturday night, and I was lying on the sofa googling breastfeeding problems/solutions, and trawling through Facebook for more answers and help. I had the can of formula sitting on the kitchen bench top, with a tear rolling down my cheek. Then this ad came through on Facebook feed "The Thompson Method" I quickly started to scroll through the page and then onto Dr Robyns website.

I thought to myself, Ok try one more thing, so I sent a SOS email, never thinking in a million years I would get a reply. By 9am Sunday morning I had a reply from the marvellous Marie, and by 11am the fabulous Joanne had me on a breastfeeding rescue FaceTime with the amazing Robyn. Before I even started a feed with Robyn Thompson I knew that we were going to be ok, just from her introduction to that we would be doing and how we were going to achieve what I wanted. I cried and cried, I had found what I had been looking for.

I straight away felt heard, loved, supported, not judged and I knew we were in safe hands. On that first FaceTime , Robyn achieved what NO ONE else could, she got my little man latched, pain free and no screaming or refusal. I was gobsmacked as I was a bit skeptical about the full video calling thing and I was literally ready to jump on the next flight to Brisbane from Sydney.

She explained that everything we were going to do to get my little man exclusively breastfeeding, and that through it all my mental health and my mothering instinct was the most important thing. She shared her knowledge, compassion, her valuable time, just to name a few. Robyn taught me how to pump and bottle feed properly while we were getting the breastfeeding established, nothing was ever too much to ask, not just of Robyn but also Joanne and the team.

So what was the outcome............ After 2 1/12- 3 weeks Robyn had Jacob exclusively breastfeeding from both breasts with no top ups from bottles, no SNS, no nipple shields and today my little chunky monkey will 6 months next week and is thriving.

I wish I had've know about Robyns online course while I was pregnant, I know I wouldn't of been through half the battles I have been and I would have saved thousands on everyone/everything else.

Robyn didn't only empower me to succeed as a mum to breastfeed, but she also ignited a fire inside of me to want to help other Mum's out there, this week I have just started training to become a breastfeeding consultant in hoping that I can help anyone else, even if its just one person.

Robyn, Joanne and the full team, I will be forever grateful for everything you done for me, there is never enough words to describe how grateful I actually I am.

PS soooooooooo sorry for the long post, its hard to condense this type of thing!!!! hugs as always xxxxxxx

Melisah     ⭐⭐⭐⭐  
"I was lucky enough to come across Robyn's services when my second son, Aydan, was around 4 months old.  I had experienced difficulty breastfeeding with both of my children, resulting in nipple trauma, which was not only very painful but also caused me quite a bit of emotional turmoil as well. 

In my experiences before Robyn, I found many midwives had different approaches to attachment and I always remember thinking to myself that this was supposed to be a natural process but the way I had been shown just seemed so forced and unnatural. 

 Upon meeting Robyn and hearing all about her philosophy on breastfeeding and seeing how warmly she responded to both myself and Aydan, I just knew I had struck gold. 

Robyn is extremely gentle and caring and The Thompson Method just really makes sense.  It felt much more natural to me and I am only sorry I hadn't met Robyn sooner! 

Thank you Robyn for sharing your wealth of knowledge with me, I will be forever grateful for the valuable lessons you have taught me."

“Luckily I discovered the Thompson Method before I delivered so I went into the hospital prepared.  I had an elective caesarean and I told the Midwife on duty that I wanted uninterrupted skin on skin immediately after birth and to be allowed to BF on my own. Immediately after birth, they did the APGAR scoring which I didn’t mind and handed baby immediately over and we were rolled into recovery together. In recovery, a LC was waiting and a Midwife from the theatre, she immediately held baby’s head and shoved it to the nipple. It happen so fast that I told her I got this, pushed her hand away and thankfully baby latched on. For the entire duration of my stay, they allowed me to bf without interruptions and would always just ask how we were going and if I had questions to ask. I was lucky enough to have a really good experience. However, it would’ve been a different story had I not have discovered The Thompson Method.

1 year old and still successfully breastfeeding

"I want to give Dr. Robyn Thompson 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!!!"

My labour/induction went as well as can be expected. The support from staff in a moral sense was phenomenal, could tell they really cared and were there for bubs and I when we needed. Breast feeding support was... well, not really "support" if I'm honest.

They did the whole sandwich my boob in one hand and grab baby's head with the other and try to shove baby's head on to my boob after putting my nipple on his nose. That was very stressful. He also had jaundice and my partner even said his eyes are very yellow but they discharged us anyway, then we had to go back in 2 days later and stay for 3 nights for, guess what... Severe jaundice. This affected feeding as well, as bubs was so tired. 

Once we were home the third time around, I had developed mastitis really badly and started shaking and couldn't get warm so we had to go back to hospital AGAIN which took forever. 

All in all we had a pretty bumpy first week-and-a-half, I felt like they rushed to get me and bubs out, but after I discovered the Thompson Method my breast feeding got 100x easier, although that was 2 months after bubs was born, so my poor nipples were nearly ready to give up. Couldn't be more thankful I found this page

Eden C    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  

It’s 9am and I sit here, overwhelmed with gratitude for all Robyn and Jo’s help.

I’ve posted here before, and I’ll continue to share our journey so that other mamas know that breastfeeding is achievable... you can do this...
We’ve been through bad latch, tongue and lip tie laser, breast aversion, split and bleeding nipples for over 8 weeks, mastitis, thrush, low weight gain, top ups, and low supply.At almost 14weeks our tiny little man weighs only 4.9kg... but thanks to Robyn’s support and knowledge, he’s gained 390g in the last thirteen days... through breastfeeding alone. That’s such a massive relief, given a week before that he’d gained only 50g in seven days. We’re finally breaking out of the 0000’s in size rather than length.

Panther is our fifth baby, I’ve breastfed four children and felt rather self assured that I’d experienced it all... and this kid definitely showed me I was over confident.

Dr Robyn was incredibly gracious and understanding, at no point of our journey did I feel judged, and during the really tough times she was available to me 24/7 without fail.

Whilst I have family support, and my husband too, Robyn and her team truly understood my determination to breastfeed despite how many times I was tempted to give up. I really think that’s something that is crucial in all this, because it’s not many others who truly understand the emotional turmoil that goes hand in hand with the physical pain... I never really wanted to stop, but when you can’t see a solution in the near future it feels impossible.

Whatever is going on in your life right now, whether it be lack of support, time restrictions, finances, stress, allergies... just contact Jo, she’ll help with whatever barriers you are experiencing. Nothing is more important than breastfeeding your baby comfortably right now 💗

If you have been considering purchasing one of Dr Robyn’s courses honestly just do it, you will be so glad you did!

The Thompson Method is revolutionary and should be the new norm

I cannot begin to thank Dr Robyn, the team, and Joanne enough. The support is unparalleled.  When everything seemed out of sorts with COVID-19 back in March, with quarantine and my state being one the first to have cases, followed by NY, I felt alone, scared . As it meant prenatal classes weren't going to be available.  What did it mean for me and my baby?

I found Dr Robyn's method through an an on Facebook by chance. I immediately went through it and purchased within 2 weeks.

With the method I found a back bone. During unprecedented times, pandemic and all i switched doctors in the middle of pregnancy.  I advocated for myself and my baby, without fear and guilt.

My body, my baby.

My fiancee benefited too. We studied together - in case something happened to me he was prepared to advocate on my behalf and our daughter's.

This method us revolutionary and should be the new norm.

"I just had my first breastfeeding rescue consultation with Dr Robyn and prior to that was assisted greatly by Joanne Thompson.

She’s brilliant ladies. Patient, empathetic and non-judgmental.

She has helped me and more to the point EDUCATED and EMPOWERED me more in 2 hours than anyone since my first child in 2011.

So no grabbing at and milking my breasts like everyone else tries to do and has done in the past.

She keeps saying whatever we do it’s for your mental health first and foremost.

One feed at a time.

At my pace so we’re not repeating any trauma from past experiences.

She’s also explained WHY my nipples were being damaged and exactly how to fix it. Today I had no nipple trauma.

It was literally all in such minor tweaks but those minor little details make all the difference.

I’m still nervous about tonight. But I know these guys have my back

He’s been sleeping for 3 hours and counting - probs the best feed of his life.

"My baby came 4 weeks early and it was a fast labour full of intervention (forceps and episiotomy). I didn’t even get to hold her for longer than 30 seconds before she was taken to the NICU as she wasn’t breathing well on her own. I didn’t get my first skin to skin until she was 24 hours old and even then it was only for an hour as she needed to be back in with her breathing support.

 I spent all the time I could with her and after 3 weeks I was finally able to take her home. Fast forward and she is 7.5months old now and thriving, we both love breastfeeding. I found that this method really helped me have the confidence to trust both my instincts and my babies when it came to feeding.

 I may not have had the birth I wanted but I have had the breastfeeding journey I wanted and to me that’s far more important"

Nipple Trauma The Thompson Method Review

Amy E    ⭐⭐⭐⭐  
I had my initial consult with Dr Robyn when my daughter was only 8 days old. I had nipple trauma and was suffering excruciating nipple pain every feed which was less than every 2 hours, was battling to keep mastitis and engorged breasts at bay, suffering through blocked ducts and headaches. After my initial reading and consultation I felt such a sense of relief, I actually felt like I might be able to keep breast feeding, prior to the consult I did not feel like I was going to be able to persevere. 

 It took several days, nearly 5 I think, for the nipple trauma to heal and a further1-2 days before I started to experience pain free feeding sessions.

But, I knew I was on the right track and since then I have managed to exclusively breast feed, no pumping or supplementing even. We still have our battles and I always have tonnes of questions but I know I can just post them and have almost instant access to Dr Robyn and her team. I sent my initial enquiry to dr Robyn at 7.30pm one night and I had an almost immediate response from her team and a video response from Dr Robyn herself within 12 hours.

It was a Saturday night and I didn’t even know how I was going to make it though the weekend until Monday before I could ring someone. I felt so received and have been so well supported.

I have seen a lot of posts about people using nipple shields lately and I just wanted to share our story! I had a rough labour and wasn’t able to be with my be with my baby for the first day, I had colostrum that was expressed antenatally and syringe fed to my baby. This affected our breastfeeding journey significantly and baby was not able to latch. We were given a nipple shield and sent home from the hospital after just 2 days, and told to get a pump and bottles.

There were lots of tears as I felt I couldn’t feed my baby and was ready to give up, I finally managed to get Xavier to latch onto the nipple shield one night, but I knew this was not how I wanted to feed my baby.

I had followed Dr Robyn throughout my pregnancy but I honestly just thought that breastfeeding would happen and that I wouldn’t have any problems!
When my baby was 4 days old I made contact with Joanne Thompson and she organised a Breastfeeding Rescue, it absolutely rescued us!

I just wanted to thank Dr Robyn and her Team profusely! It’s been about 2 weeks since (with Dr Robyns help) I have managed to get my baby feeding without the nipple shield completely. I was at my wits end and so frustrated before Dr Robyn reassured me.

My MCHN informed me that my baby also has a tongue and lip tie and advised me to get it cut, I have not, and will not have it revised, The Thompson Method has been amazing in keeping me from getting sore nipples, as he had quite a shallow latch to begin with, but with Dr Robyns help we managed to improve his latch and I am enjoying feeding my baby now.

If it wasn’t for Dr Robyn I definitely would have given up, I cant thank her enough!

Patricia     ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I would I would like to say thank you for all the Amazing effort you put into the website, Facebook, the online package.

Everything is user friendly...

I would like to thank Dr Robyn Thompson for her very warm, genuine guidance, teaching me the Thompson method. I struggled for 5 weeks with extreme nipple trauma, I wish I had met or heard of her method during my pregnancy.

At the hospital in post natal ward I wasn't really taught how to breast feed, a lot of the midwives did it for me. They would force my baby on. I had one lady teach me to let him find it and make his way but she was on shift twice in my time so I forgot and it was all new to me. In hospital I had two lactation nurses visit me, but that was more about timing/programming my feeds.
 
About ten days after leaving the hospital  I had a nurse visit me and watch my feed. I told her that I couldn't get it and breast feeding was very uncomfortable on the nipple and my breast always felt bruised. I continued to have mis shaped nipples as my son would come off the breast. She advised me "if it's not painful it's ok"...

The next day I had a high fever, shivers and felt extremely weak, for 24 hours. My breast were always hot and swollen, not knowing what the problem was.

I had a home doctor visit me, she told me that I had developed mastitis. I went on a 5 day course of Antibiotics. I felt better within 24 hours.Still going on about my feeding, it was a big struggle for me but I just pushed through I had another nurse visit me she sat and watched my feeding again. She said "he's putting on weight, that's a good sign, feed how ever you feel comfortable, and before every feed. Just pull out your nipple before he attaches."

This was a little bit of help however, I was not confident or comfortable. I called a lactation consultant who was highly recommend to me. She came and taught me the cross cradle technique properly as the others were telling me what ever way works. However I had no idea of a way I was just hoping for the best each feed.This consultant wrote down for me the step by step process of the cross cradle technique.

I didn't have the strength to carry him properly in my right arm for my left breast. She told me that I will need to get used to it. It's a technique she's been teaching for 25 years and works best for nipple trauma. 

I felt satisfied that I had someone guide me step by step, even though I had been doing it before, I just wanted 1-1 teaching and time.

She said my nipples were so tramatised because my son had a tongue tie. She was so quick to refer me to a place and asked me if I wanted to make the booking through her. I instantly I felt anxious and hurt at the thought of doing such a procedure. I told her I will think about it. The next 24 hours feeding him step by step cross cradle, I ended up with blisters and more damage to my nipples, I was in tears ready to give up.
 

My mid wife referred me to Dr Robyn Thompson. I was a bit skeptical at first and just considered giving up.I am so glad to have met Dr Robyn, and her intuitive method. She is so heavenly, and graceful. Her method is so natural,  my pain has reduced, I still suffer pain but this is due to the trauma prior.
 
If only I had met her before... Feeding is no longer a boobie war, feeding was a battle field. Robyn has guided me through, has spent devoted time genuinely caring for my feeds. When I want to give up she is my strength,  and my pillar to continue such a beautiful gift.
 

Robyn instills confidence in you and reassures you your strength as a mother. Her approach is so holistic it's amazing. Something I thought never existed...
Breastfeeding your child is the most beautiful gift, however doing it through pain is a no go. It's traumatic, physically and emotionally. I refuse to leave the house because of the pain...

I am still trying to heal my traumatised nipples, and I believe breastfeeding in the beginning is a team effort thing for you, your child and your support network.

Robyn is the one and only support network I would recommend.I have learnt so much from Robyn personally and from her team who have supplied video footage. I have played the video package on repeat. To learn and master such a natural technique.

The teachers are not teaching us correctly.

It is something so instinctive yet has been messed up unfortunately. I want to conclude, The Dr Robyn Thompson technique, is to be spread and shared between ALL women,. Brothers, husbands and father's.We need this network widely shared.

Robyn you are an earth angel. I wish you and your team all the blessings one can get.


 Thanks a million.️️️

Exclusively breastfeeding using The Thompson Method

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Charlotte R

Exclusively breastfeeding and so happy. My breastfeeding story with The Thompson Method

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.


Does The Thompson Method Breastfeeding Work?

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Lauren L 

If you are asking yourself does The Thompson Method work? I'm proof that it does...Here's my Thompson Method Review...

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 breastfeeding course from the very start! Still breastfeeding Lola at 14 months now and no stopping us ❤️❤️❤️

So much more confidence in my journey ahead | The Thompson Method Breastfeeding Review

"I have also completed Dr Robyn’s exclusive program and I can’t tell you how much I have been educated in both! I started the course when I was around 26 weeks and I just took my time with it and now I have all of the resources at my fingertips that I can go back and watch later if I need to refresh on something. Dr Robyn will always answer personally any questions that arise or if you don’t fully understand something. I’m now 36 weeks pregnant and I can’t wait to put everything that I have learned into practice with my baby. I was so blind about everything and now I feel like my eyes are wide open and I have so much more confidence in my journey ahead."


Dr Robyn has changed my breastfeeding journey forever
x
I just have to say that Dr Robyn has changed my breastfeeding journey forever. I did everything (I mean really!) to get my breastfeeding journey with my first to work. I worked with 4 lactation consultants, a physical therapist, speech therapist, chiropractor, ENT and others. We got my poor son's tongue tie clipped, not once, not twice, but three times. I studied my brains out to try and figure it out, and yet, while he gained weight beautifully, and was a healthy baby, I was in agony still. I cried every time I fed him, my toes curled in pain, and my nipples were damaged and painful. This continued for SIX MONTHS. I finally stopped breastfeeding because it was contributing so much to my depression that I went to the ER, afraid I wouldn't make it through the weekend without help. They told me a few things to change, and one of the biggest was to stop breastfeeding. NOW. That was devastating to me, but I'm glad I listened. Breastfeeding through that much pain, and with all my issues... It was not good for me or my baby.
When baby 2 came along, I wanted to try, but promised my husband I wouldn't push it if it was still so painful. I nursed for 2 weeks, and had to stop.
When I was pregnant with baby 3, I knew I wanted breastfeeding to work, but had little hope. And then I stumbled across a comment on Facebook about the Thompson Method. I don't know why, but I was intrigued. I had tried tons of methods and things in the past, but they had never worked. Yet, I felt that something here was different.
I did the research I could on my own, but soon decided that I wanted to own the course. I made the purchase, and devoured the content. Every spare moment I was watching or listening. And for the first time, I was feeling hope.
When my son was born, things were obviously different, and my pain was more manageable, but still there. I tried for a week and a half, when my husband and I decided that if something didn't change, I couldn't do this again. Pushing through that much pain, while also raising a 4 year old, 2 year old, and newborn, recovering from having a baby, and fighting to keep depression at bay was just not an option again.
My husband persuaded me that it was worth the investment, and so we set up a breastfeeding rescue with Dr Robyn. I was so nervous that first time, but there was no need! Robyn is sweet, understanding, down to earth, and encouraging. She gave me a few ideas, but I actually left that first consult feeling discouraged. I guess I expected her to be able to wave a magic wand and for the pain to be gone, but, of course, life doesn't work that way. She and I have talked quite a few times since then. Video consults, recorded videos, phone calls, messages... She's just been there for me, and her wonderful daughter
Joanne Thompson
has jumped through hoops to schedule things and get answers for me. They are both amazing. I truly cannot say enough.
So, where are we now? My sweet son is 9 weeks old. I won't say that nursing is totally painless, but it's not very painful anymore, and I think it will be totally painless soon. We've made lots of adjustments to the way we nurse, and are seeing amazing success! I know he has a tongue tie, but I'm not worried about it. It's not a problem as long as we are getting the latch right, and so on. I have every hope that our breastfeeding journey is only beginning, and I'm proud of myself for the 9 weeks we've gone so far. Without the Thompson Method, I would have stopped nursing by 2 weeks again, and likely never tried again with any future babies. But now I have every hope.
Please, please, give the Thompson Method a try. A lot of people get the change they need with just the basic video. For some people the full course is needed. And for some people (or if you just don't want to go through the stress and want an expert by your side from the first step) a breastfeeding rescue is needed. Please don't be afraid to invest in yourself and your baby!
I have gained so much. I have gained a confidence in mothering and understanding my baby that I never had before (remember, I've had 2 others, so that's saying something!). I've gained insight into my baby and his needs. I've gained the ability to finally feed and care for my baby without much pain, and to give him the nourishment he needs. I've gained the confidence to trust my own intuition. And I've gained new friends in Joanne and Robyn. Thank you both so much!

I wholeheartedly feel that by following the Thompson method my breastfeeding journey started off on the right foot and it’s been 6 months in and still going strong. There were some rough patches in the beginning but we made it through. I had these milk bath photos taken to commemorate this milestone. I wanted to give credit where credit is due!

Anna D   ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  
I just have a little bit of a mom brag because I am SO PROUD of my boobies and SO THANKFUL for this method!


I’ll start by saying that I had a pretty traumatic delivery. I hemorrhaged and ended up losing 1.5liters of blood and going unconscious. I did not get to hold my son (other than briefly while my husband cut his cord) until he was 4.5 hours old, and even then it was a very short time until a few hours later. I was told by every doctor I saw in the hospital and my son’s pediatrician that due to my blood loss they did not expect my milk to come in for 10-14 days IF it came in at all. 


Well today my son turned one month old. He has had no formula, but did have a little donor milk in the hospital. Yesterday we had to buy a second deep freezer JUST for breast milk. I will be going back to work after 12 weeks so I wanted to start a freezer supply.

Today I have 420oz of breast milk in the deep freezer.
I don’t know if it’s genetics, this method, luck, or some combination of the three, but I am SO thrilled. With the fear of not getting my supply, and then the pain I was having the first 2.5 weeks, I never set a goal for myself for how long I would like to breastfeed my son.

Today I’ve decided to make that goal for the first year of his life and I cannot wait time accomplish that!

Just wanted to quickly jump on here and say a big thank you to Dr Robyn and her phenomenal team for the amazing work they do day in and day out to support us mumma’s. 

I am a FTM to a beautiful little daughter Evie born 26/06/2020. I had a dream pregnancy and an epic all natural water birth. I was never concerned about labour and birth nor was I concerned about changing nappies, sleep deprivation and the like that comes with looking after a newborn baby. 
I was however concerned about how hard breastfeeding can be and the pain it can cause. I was so determined to get educated and collectively use my intuition. I therefore began researching and am so glad I came across The Thompson’s Method. 
I can wholeheartedly say that having watched every video I could get my hands on through Dr Robyn’s program as well as reading posts and comments on the FB groups whilst I was pregnant, I felt as prepared as I could possibly be. I even included a section in my birth plan/map on breastfeeding in the first 24-48 hours based on my learnings so that it was crystal clear to the hospital staff what I wanted. 
Since my little girl has been earthside with me over the last week I have implemented so many of The Thompson’s Method breastfeeding techniques and teaching (including swaddling so that she can still move her arms and use her moro reflex!) and I am so pleased to say that I have had NO nipple trauma, breastfeeding has been so enjoyable and pain free and my little girl is also loving every minute of it. My fears of breastfeeding are no longer there. 
Whilst I was in hospital I had one midwife quickly try and force Evie onto my boob and told me to point my nipple up towards her nose. In that split second moment I was able to quickly, politely and confidently ask that she didn’t handle her and that I wanted to do it a different way. I was pretty proud of myself for being able to speak up and I have Dr Robyn and her team to thank for that. 
So so so grateful I came across Dr Robyn and her work. Thank you! 🤱🏼💕

A strong foundation of knowledge

"My sweet Marin is home now after just over two days on the ward with some absolutely fantastic midwives looking after us! While respecting my requests for ample time to work things out naturally and gently with bub, their offered guidance and suggestions were very much appreciated(some worked for us and some didn't).

The Thompson Method gave me such a strong foundation of knowledge that made me feel like an active participant in my antenatal care, birth and breastfeeding establishment. Marin and I are still working to find our groove but I know to trust my instincts over all else, I also know that that is way easier said than done a lot of the time. I continue to remind myself that I cannot "fail" this baby. Every choice I make for her health and mine, mentally, emotionally and physically will be the right one because it will stem from Motherly love, the ultimate love.
Thank you Dr. Robyn and team, you should be so proud of what you do and of your colleagues around the world that share your passion for supporting new Mother's on this new and amazing journey"

Breastfeeding my third set of twins for a year thanks to The Thompson Method

"What a journey! Breastfeeding my third set of twinnies for a year. Sometimes you feel like it will last forever and then all of a sudden you realize it’s mostly over. WHAT?!Breastfeeding is such a short time in a child’s life, but man.... the deep bonds, emotional ties, mental energy, calories consumed and physical demands is something a mama will never forget. I am so thankful my breastfeeding journey isn’t over yet with these 2. The Thompson Method has made that journey for the 3 of us so much richer. Education, Learning, Help and Support and Success (individual to each unique story). I don’t doubt for a second that the Thomson Method will be at the forefront of doubling breastfeeding rates around the world! This is a word class program I have been so happy to be apart of with my babies.💕


The Thompson Method Reviews Exclusive breastfeeding for 11 months, 2 weeks, 3 days and 4.5 hours

Lydia H   ⭐⭐⭐⭐  

"Thank you the Thompson Method for guiding Billie and I to successfully exclusive breastfeeding (with the addition of big people food all the way to 11 months, 2 weeks, 3 days and roughly 4.5 hours of Billie and I totally rocking this boobie gig!

Through low supply, excess birth weight lost, premature c section birth, opioid effected baby, necessary medications, shallow latching, teething, and everything in between!

And you know what? Even through all that I knew I was supported, I knew my baby was ok, and I knew I was doing all the right things.

Joining the Thompson Method village around half way through my fourth and final pregnancy was the best antenatal decision I made.

This picture was taken of us over the weekend, both of us entirely oblivious to it and completely enthralled in our time boobing on the beach while my 3 beautiful boys paddled in the ocean near by 💚 this is what it’s all about 💗 we both have no end in sight for this amazing nurturing & nourishing journey we are on together and we couldn’t be happier (or healthier) mumma’s currently having difficulties;

I promise you’re in the right place and you will get through. If I did, you totally can too xox"

My little one struggled for 2 weeks before finding The Thompson Method | Dr Robyn Thompson Review

I’m not sure whether this is an option for you, but there is a program called the Thompson method. Robyn Thompson provides help to mums with breastfeeding, my LO struggled to breast feed for the first 2 weeks and the program helped a lot. They do offer a breastfeeding rescue program, where they assist mums on helping bub get back on the boob.

At the least it might be worth a look, they help Mums all around the world.

 3 Golden Hours, even after an emergency C-Section

Carrie G    ⭐⭐⭐⭐  
I gave birth to my first child on 22nd August. It took myself and partner over 8 years to conceive. We tried IVF 3 times and then ended up conceiving naturally. Obviously I was very excited about finally being pregnant but I was nervous about being a good mum.

A lot of friends and family members said they had struggled with breastfeeding which is why I decided to purchase the course. The birth itself didn’t go at all to plan, 24hr labour, problems along the way and ending in an emergency c-section. I have to say NHS surgeons were great and my baby boy was born safe and sound. The golden hours after the c was great, lovely skin to skin with a very long first feed.

Although after 7 days I’m still fine tuning things, my breastfeeding journey has made a great start. He was weighed on day 5 and I was told to expect a 10% reduction of his birth weight which was 3.81kg. Not only did he not lose weight, he’s put on 700g. He is a hungry little man and I’m so glad that the feeding is going so well.

When I was in hospital after the c, I was on a ward with 10 other women. Out of those women only 1 other person was breastfeeding without a problem, all of the other women had issues. I think I’m very lucky to have a baby that feeds so well but I also know that the course gave me the knowledge and confidence to be ready. I think it’s so sad that so many women struggle at such an important time and I’m so thankfully for the information this course has given me.

Thanks from a grateful mum, dad and baby Logan! 😊

Knowledge, confidence and support thanks to The Thompson Method

"We made it! 12 weeks of EBF!! After a heartbreaking breastfeeding experience with our first born, my initial goal was to just get to 3 months EBF if I could. And we made it and so now I have to set a new goal cause we’re sure not giving up yet!!!! And it’s all thanks to this program that gave me the knowledge, and more importantly, the CONFIDENCE to get to this point!

Thank you Dr Robyn and team, I feel so blessed to be able to feed my baby girl.."

1 year of exclusive breastfeeding thanks to the Thompson Method

1 year of exclusive breastfeeding. The Thompson Method Review

I made it. Tomorrow marks one year of breastfeeding thanks to the Thompson method.

My goal was 1 month, then 3 months, then 6 months, then teeth.... and now he has 8 teeth and is 1 year old tomorrow and I am still able to breastfeed. I can’t thank Dr Robyn Thompson enough. If you are thinking of doing a rescue I highly recommend it!!! I never thought I would be able to breastfeed, let alone for a year so I am truly thankful for Dr Robyns knowledge, support and help.

No tongue-tie issues breastfeeding and no nipple shield needed

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Caroline J

No tongue-tie issues breastfeeding and no nipple shield needed | The Thompson Method Breastfeeding Review

I just delivered my son at 37 weeks and he ended up having to be rushed straight to the NICU. He wasn’t able to feed for the first 24 hours and by the time he could, it wasn’t perfect. However, this program gave me the confidence, knowledge and patience to work with him to get it right. Out of pure curiosity, I did end up meeting with the hospital lactation consultant who, to my horror, IMMEDIATELY informed me my son had a tongue tie that needed to be fixed, said I would HAVE to use a shield with him and then tried to have me grab the back of his head and shove him on me. No! I politely thanked her and asked her to give me some time. She came back today in disbelief that he has fed repeatedly with no shield, no tongue tie issues and is getting fully satisfied each time. Rest and digest for the win! Thank you Thompson Method!
