Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program
All women should have support while breastfeeding. We are here to help you give the gift only you can give. Breastfeeding provides the best nutrition possible for your infant, helps you lose pregnancy weight, gives your baby special protection against illness, and meets your baby's changing needs. Our friendly Breastfeeding Peer Counselors and WIC staff can support you and answer your breastfeeding questions. We help "at home" moms and moms who work.
Sign up for the Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program at your local WIC office. We will give you details on getting started, explain the benefits of breastfeeding, address common concerns and give you support.
What is the Breastfeeding Peer Counseling program?
The Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program is a mother-to-mother service available to help answer your patient’s questions about giving their baby the best start. Moms-to-be can talk to women who have practical suggestions for making breastfeeding an enjoyable bonding experience for the whole family. WIC also offers a food package for participants who exclusively breastfeed their babies, which includes additional amounts of milk or cheese.
