Dr. Ashton Fortin Higgins, Ph.D. is the Founder and Educator at the Exclusive Pumping Institute. The Institute focuses on the education and training of exclusively pumping breast milk. Dr. Ashton obtained her Ph.D. and M.Ed. in Human Sexuality Studies from Widener University where her research focused on HIV education. Dr. Ashton received her 90+ breastfeeding education hours from Mohawk College.

She specifically consults with exclusive pumping individuals to establish proper breast flange sizing, appropriate scheduling and other concerns relating solely to exclusive pumping. Dr. Ashton also provides education and training to lactation health professionals to better understand exclusive pumping, as it differs from at breast consultations. She is passionate about exclusive pumping advocacy, and seeks a level of acceptance for exclusive pumpers in that exclusive pumping is a valid feeding choice for infants in addition to nursing, supplementing, and formula.
