Ashley Fore has been caring for mothers and babies for more than a decade. After earning her master’s degree in nursing from the University of Virginia, Ashley gained a wide range of clinical experience relating to pregnancy and childbirth. Ashley is a certified Maternal Newborn Nurse (RNC-MNN) and she has held labor & delivery, postpartum, and newborn nursing positions at UVA Medical Center, Winnie Palmer Hospital in Orlando, Florida (one of the busiest delivery wards in the country), and Sibley Hospital in Washington, D.C. Ashley’s interest in lactation consulting grew when she worked for Ameda – one of the nation’s leading breast pump companies – which put her in touch with many hospitals and lactation consultants in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and the Carolinas. This role let her see best practices within the breastfeeding-support community and better understand the many challenges that new mothers face when learning to feed their babies and use a breast pump. In 2014 Ashley became an Internationally Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), the gold standard in lactation. After earning her IBCLC certification, Ashley worked as a lactation consultant with Momseze, a telemedicine breastfeeding-support company. Most recently, Ashley worked in private practice with Lou Lamb at Breastfeeding Blues & Bliss. Ashley is incredibly grateful for Lou’s guidance and friendship over the years, and she’s excited to expand lactation care in the Charlottesville area. Ashley’s clinical interests include management of oversupply, healing damaged nipples, pump flange fitting and troubleshooting, preparing to go back to work, and prenatal consults. Ashley lives in Crozet with her husband and children. In her free time she enjoys volunteering with the Junior League of Charlottesville, baking, and running.
