As a lactation professional, you recognize that Google isn’t the way to learn more about exclusive pumping.
You’ve always wanted to learn more about exclusive pumping for lactation consultants but no idea where to start.
You’re amazing at helping lactating parents at breast: But you’ve been helping all your exclusive pumping clients through mostly your knowledge of at breast consults.
You are all for at the breast: But deep down you think exclusive pumping is a “fad” or “people who gave up too soon”.
Your time is valuable: You don’t have tons of spare time to devote to using YouTube to view hundreds of videos on pumps and breast pump accessories
You’ve been wondering WHY people exclusively pump and why they aren’t pushing to get back at breast.
You’re unsure WHEN to bring up exclusive pumping in your consults because you don’t want your clients to miss out on the opportunity to nurse.
You’re typically great with your clients’ lactation questions: But sometimes an exclusive pumper asks a question and you are searching for the answer.
You’ve attended a short presentation on exclusive pumping, but know it’s not enough education and training on this topic or how to execute it into practice.
You were an exclusive pumper yourself, but are unsure how to approach an exclusive pumping client’s experience that may be different than your own.
You are eager to start your career as a lactation consultant, but had little training as to correctly size your client’s for pump flanges.
It all feels WAY too overwhelming, right?

Not to mention there is no other course out there covering all this essential exclusive pumping information + education + training that you will need as this method of feeding continues to increase in lactation.
How do I make that possible?
It's called the
Lactation Advancement Exclusive Pumping (LAEP) Framework.
What is the LAEP Framework?
It's a Lactation Advancement Framework to help you with your exclusive pumping clients. Let me explain...
TRUTH: I’m not just another person making a course for the sake of making a course. I actually have a Masters in Education and am an Educator. I know what makes course content interesting + fun all while trying to integrate the serious stuff you need to succeed with your exclusive pumping clients. My teaching philosophy is based on Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences, and that means I cater to many learning styles, which ultimately benefits you as a learner. Lactation Advancement is the world of 2021 and beyond.
Are you ready to hop on board? Because the Exclusive Pumping feeding method continues to grow…exponentially.
I am 100% confident that you as a lactation professional have been eager to know more about exclusive pumping.
I know that you have been longing this education + training + resources to make you credible, knowledgeable and confident in exclusive pumping as a lactation professional.
How do I know?
I’ve been on the flip side. That client who had asked questions, got blank stares form my lactation consultants and lactation nurses. That client who had been told this may not work out, your baby should be at breast. And I am not alone. There is well over 125,000 exclusive pumpers out there, many of which believe you should already know everything there is to know about exclusive pumping and breast pumps.
This course will help to alleviate this gap in your lactation knowledge, without trying to figure it out all on your own.
Hi there, I'm Dr. Ashton!
I’m a paragraph. Double click me or click Edit Text, it's easy.
I'm an educator, with extensive experience and training in discussing sensitive topics with clients. I have well over 125 hours of lactation education. I also hold both a PhD & MEd in Human Sexuality Studies from Widener University, where I focused on HIV/AIDS research & education. I founded the Exclusive Pumping Institute because there are so many exclusive pumpers out there trying to figure it all out on their own, with less than adequate support from lactation professionals. I know this needed to change!
As I lived out 6 months of triple feeding my first child, and 9 months of exclusive pumping for my second child, it was clear not everyone was understanding of my choices for triple feeding or exclusive pumping. I was constantly justifying myself to friends, family and lactation health professionals. Many of which wanted me to make the leap to 100% formula. I couldn’t. I owed it to my child to provide my amazing health attributes, and I was going to do what it took for them to have my milk. I’d spend my middle of the night googling + researching hours, upon hours searching for answers not even lactation consultants could provide. I had to take the 95 hours of lactation education to see why I, along with many others just were not getting the support. It became clear that expressing milk had very little published when it came to exclusive pumping in my textbook. This was a 2019 publication. I began to understand why exclusive pumpers have been left to fend for themselves.
I’m here because I believe this course is absolutely necessary for anyone who works in lactation. Truth is, I wasted way more hours than a lactating person ever should on things lactation professionals should have been helping me figure out. We have newborns at home, but in the middle of exhaustion we are supposed to research? (NO WAY). Lactation professionals are dropping the ball here, and this course is about you putting the ball in your client’s court, successfully. Give them hours of sleep back, and chalk it up to being a valuable resource for them to make a follow-up appointment with you! If you think you will never see a client who exclusively pumps, this course is even more for you! This feeding method is growing at an alarming rate, so unless you are retiring in the immediate future, you will come to learn much within the Exclusive Pumping in Lactation Practice course.
I truly believe you have so many of the skills to help your clients at breast but you are still searching for the essential skills + tools + knowledge required in your consults with exclusive pumpers. Whether that’s better understanding where they are coming from, or having a hard time keeping up with so many breast pumps and accessories, take this journey with me! I know you’ve got this!

This course might NOT be for you if:
You are retiring in the next 12 months. This course focuses on exclusive pumping as a growing method to feed infants breastmilk. Unless you are already experiencing a high number of exclusive pumpers in your practice, you may not receive as much value as a lactation professional who is just starting out, or has 2+ years left in practice.
You are not a fan of various learning methods. This course involves video, audio, reading, critical thinking, problem solving & kinesthetics learning. I give teaching and educating 110%, and I aspire to have students that want to put the work in at their own pace to take part in this transformative experience.
NOT YOU? I didn’t think so!
Your Frequently Asked Questions... Answered
Is this course just for lactation professionals who have lots of exclusive pumping clients in practice?
No. I provided you with some quick visuals, this practice is growing at an alarming rate. As time goes on, you will start to receive an influx of exclusive pumpers looking for your full blown expertise and support.
I think I can get all this information for free online. Why should I pay for a course on exclusive pumping?
Expertise, Framework & Geared for Lactation professionals, not exclusive pumpers themselves. I know there are a bunch of free resources out there, but they are for exclusive pumpers, not lactation consultants or lactation professionals. I then ask you, do you have hours upon hours to spare to search it all out? Probably not. You are a busy professional, let me guide you in the right direction.
I was/am an exclusive pumper. Should I still take your course?
Yes, my fellow EPer. I focus on collective exclusive pumping education. That means not just one point of view, but multiple journeys and multiple scenarios. I dig deep & conduct research continuously to keep increasing more exclusive pumping knowledge and advocacy back into the world. Answering questions on EP Facebook groups is great, but chances are you might be missing some key components to increasing your efforts as a well-rounded lactation advancement expert.
I’ve attended a presentation on about exclusive pumping at a conference. Should I still take your course.
Yes. I am thrilled you are working on increasing your knowledge on exclusive pumping. Chances are the 20, 40 even 120-minute presentation was only the tip of the iceberg of how to implement this in practice. This course is designed to have you take part in your learning, not just hear what the presenter has to say. Plus, I teach about how to put these skills and additional knowledge components in practice.
Do I need to be an IBCLC to take your course?
No. But I strongly suggest you have taken or in a course on breastfeeding. This course still needs some basic knowledge of milk supply and how the breast makes milk. This course is ideal for IBCLC, CLC, CLE, CBS, cALS, doulas, lactation nurse, and midwives. Anyone who currently works in lactation or aspires to be in lactation.
Does this course offer CERPS?
No. Courses offering CERPS cost more. I am jamming this course full of great things at a low-price to cover many aspects of exclusive pumping you may have never thought of before. The one-time ($497 or $797) payment option offers lifetime access to a wealth of breast pumps + hacks, I think we can agree having access to this alone is worth the cost!
Does this course offer any hours towards the 95 hours of lactation specific education required by IBLCE?
No. This course is not counted towards the lactation specific education, as that focuses primarily at breast. This course is offered to build on the skills you would have already acquired or are currently acquiring as a lactation consultant, lactation counselor, lactation educator, doula, midwife or lactation nurse.
Dr. Ashton, you are not an IBCLC, why are you offering this to lactation professionals?
Because it is essential. So many courses on lactation education are focused on at breast. As they should. However, only receiving at breast lactation education causes a significant gap in how to consult with your exclusive pumping clients. I’ve been wronged by IBCLCs & Lactation Nurses because they just didn’t know what do or say. I can assure you, many exclusive pumpers feel this way. This is a problem. I don’t want you to have a deer in headlights look or base all your responses to exclusive pumpers based on what you know about nursing parents. Worse yet, I don’t want you to say things that clients will find an alternative answer elsewhere, making you look less credible in lactation, something you are already have already worked so hard to attain. These consults will look different than nursing consults, hands down. I’m also a researcher and an educator, this means I am continuously increasing my own knowledge which will allow you to grow as a lactation advancement professional as well.
When does the course start?
The course starts with Pre-Module as soon as you have made payment. Every week I will continue to add the content as laid out for you, which should fall between 60 to 90 days to complete. You can continue this course at your own pace. Please keep in mind that your 4 week Voxer access starts the day immediately after your payment is processed.
Is this course just based for Americans?
No. This course is for any lactation professional anywhere in the world. Admittedly, I am Canadian and as such, I bring an extra layer of dynamic to exclusive pumping in lactation practice, the lack of adequate breast pump access in Canada. Canadian lactation professionals will greatly benefit from the content of this course. As an individual who spent a decade in graduate school in the US, I am equally well versed in the needs of exclusive pumpers in the United States.
How long do I have access to this course?
You have lifetime access the course content, so you can come back to learn at your own pace. Keep in mind that your access is based on the payment option you have chosen. If you have chosen the payment plan option, you will only have life time access to the course basics. The one time payment options will have lifetime access to all the bonuses mentioned within your plan + additional content as it continues to become available.
What currency is the course purchase price in?
The course is in USD.
Canadians – in order to help with the currency conversion, I cover the taxes for you (no added tax on top of the $497).
What if I am unhappy with the course?
I know buying courses is scary. I've been there. What I also know is that there are thousands of exclusive pumpers that want this type of expertise and professionalism from you, their lactation health professional. There is no other course out there that can provide you with the level of detail, education and insight that this course promises to deliver. I have a Masters in Education, and as such I promise to provide you with the education & training you deserve on this topic. In fact, you have lifetime access to course content, so there is no need to jot down notes frantically while sitting through presentations. This course delivers a transformative experience, at your own pace. I want you to feel comfortable with answering your clients' questions, ability to flange size them, to know the mainstream breast pumps that exclusive pumpers select and how to teach them their use. I want you to come from a place of cultural humility with exclusive pumpers, when your world may have been focused at breast for so many years. There is no doubt that exclusive pumping clients have different needs than nursing parents, and your consults will be different. I firmly believe in this course in so I am making it my life's work to help exclusive pumpers, and that starts with you. There is so little training and education on breast pumps in the 90 hours of lactation education. It may equate to a page or two, none of which begins to explain the level of detail you will need to address the concerns of exclusive pumpers. Something you will find in deep detail in this course. I want you to go into the world prepared.
If you feel the fit isn't right within 7 days, I will refund you the money no questions asked. Please send me an email at for your refund. There are no forms to fill out, nothing to prove. I am so confident in this course's content that you will have certainly learned something of value to add to your lactation practice!
Kayla, Exclusive Pumper -
Thank you Exclusive Pumping Institute for doing this [educating health professionals on exclusive pumping].
Ashley, Exclusive Pumper - LAR Contributor
Trying to get my baby to latch is what LCs were doing. There was no education on pumping. We need the help to be able to exclusively pump.
Jessica, Exclusive Pumper -
[...] then a pump was brought in with a pump kit, the nurses showed them how to clean and sanitize it properly, that was it. No education on the pump, or how the settings work
