Exclusive Pumping Research
While Jardine (2020) has created a measure to examine EPing, there are still many unknowns within EP research. For example, while selection/acquiring of a breast pump is examined, things that EPers/lactation consultant may want more information on are breast pump settings, which requires further investigation. While this can vary from one lactating person to the next, understanding a more profound knowledge of breast pump setting preferences can give lactating persons a start and guiding point. Another area of interest is Canadian differences in acquiring a breast pumps in comparison to American lactating persons. These are just a few of my EP research specific interests.
While I am in the early stages of creating an instrument to measure some of these EP research concerns, please feel free to send me an email if you are interested in potentially participating in the future. When the survey has passed an Institutional Review Board (IRB), a form of ethical review, I will post the survey link here. You are welcome to keep checking back!
Donors & Investors: If you are interested in assisting with funding EP research, please send me a email.
