Lactation + perinatal care like you've never seen.

It's time to best serve all individuals who breastfeed, lactate, pump, chestfeed, bodyfeed, supplement feed, donate milk and so much more. At Pumped Love Lactation by Exclusive Pumping Institute, our belief is to provide human milk for as long as it is possible for you to do so. Every bit of human milk is beneficial, and our lactation care supports your milk feeding goals. We also believe in the power to help you make informed decisions from baby bump to the postpartum period.

Dr. Ashton (breastfeeder, triple-feeder, exclusive pumper, advanced lactation specialist, sexologist + mom)

Finding exclusive pumping lactation support is extremely hard, and rare in Canada. I founded the Exclusive Pumping Institute in 2020 because there is a true gap in exclusive pumping education, training and research globally, where I focus on enlightening lactation professionals. The Pumped Love Lactation unit of the Exclusive Pumping Institute focuses on supporting every one who lactates. I use inclusive terms, your feeding terms, your name, your baby's name and your support person's name to help build the relationship. I'm committed to helping you get your little one human milk for as long as possible. I focus on perinatal mental health to make sure you are getting the care and support you need to help you succeed in your new parenting and milk feeding goals.

My IBCLC Mentor Practices

​I am currently an IBLCE pathway 3 approved lactation student. This means I require 500 hours of supervised lactation care to sit the IBCLC exam. The benefit to you is that you obtain IBCLC care at a reduced rate, and my IBCLC mentors are available to assist me at anytime should we require their experience. You may browse their sites to verify their credentials, but all bookings for my services are through Pumped Love Lactation by Exclusive Pumping Institute.
