Let's first look at the problem.....

Will this work in my timezone?
Currently, all of our practitioners are based in Australia, however available times are designed to suit most timezones. UK & EUR appointments are generally scheduled for mornings. USA and CAD appointments are generally scheduled for afternoons / evenings.
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.
