The Thompson Method: Empowered Women In Control Of Their Birth And Breastfeeding Experience

(MENAFN- MarketersMEDIA)

With 50-years experience as a Midwife in the hospital system and as a Homebirth Midwife, Dr Robyn Thompson has a unique perspective in breastfeeding. As founder of The Thompson Method, she is proud of her online program that is changing the lives of women worldwide.

Cleveland QLD, Australia - August 5, 2022 —

Her gentle approach to breastfeeding, known as The Thompson Method has evolved over a lifetime of work, with Dr Robyn and her team working hard behind the scenes to create an online program that not only shares her information, but also provides guidance and support for those who need it. The information shared in this breastfeeding method challenges the forceful techniques of breastfeeding commonly taught in the hospital system. Her doctoral thesis: A Retrospective, Cross-Sectional Study of an In-Home Breastfeeding Programme and a half-century of observation formed the basis for the program. 

The information is evidence-based and harnesses a woman's maternal instincts. It is not about teaching a woman how to breastfeed. It is about sharing information with her so that she can make informed decisions, sometimes in unexpected and challenging situations. The Thompson Method for breastfeeding provides women with the knowledge and support to help them reduce the risk of painful, damaged nipples, and other common breastfeeding complications such as breast engorgement and mastitis. The aim is to be fully prepared for their birth and breastfeeding journey with confidence.

There are tens of thousands of mothers who discovered the benefits of The Thompson Method, and one of these mothers, Natali recently shared her excitement….

“I am SO excited! SO EXCITED!! 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.” ~ Natali

Dr Robyn states, 'Even before The Thompson Method was defined, I wanted the world to be aware of what these women had shown me about their competence, strength, and capability during pregnancy, giving birth, and transitioning to breastfeeding. My aim,' she continued, 'before I leave Mother Earth, is to encourage a movement of empowered women with the confidence and knowledge to make informed decisions for themselves and their babies.' 

The Thompson Method is more than just a technique on how to get a good latch. It is that, but it is so much more. It is breastfeeding education to help women understand how breast milk is produced so that they have the self-confidence to realise that their breasts are designed to nourish their baby without fear of low milk supply. It is having the knowledge to understand that unnecessarily introducing nipple shields, teats, bottles, and pacifiers is likely to complicate breastfeeding. Furthermore, it's understanding that the events that occur during a woman's labour and birth greatly influences breastfeeding.

“July 1st I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl. She latched with no problem.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ One of the nurses told me she would be over to help with getting her latched. The way she taught was all wrong.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ She was amazed at the results I have been having with milk production, my baby weight gain and not having to use formula or a bottle at all.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ I'm pretty sure my daughter appreciates this program as well.” ~ Erica

These stories demonstrate that The Thompson Method is about a woman empowering herself with knowledge and confidence to be in control of her labour, her birth, and her breastfeeding experience. 


The Thompson Method offers a full range of labour, birth, and the breastfeeding experience information to women making decisions about their bodies and their options for breastfeeding. The Thompson Method is based on her Ph.D. thesis research, as well as half a century of working in the field.
