The WIC program strongly supports mothers’ milk as the main source of nutrition for infants.
Breastfeeding improves health outcomes, lowers health care costs and saves lives! New mothers are supported with breastfeeding counseling services and free pumps.
Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program
The WIC Peer Counseling staff are moms within the community who have breastfed their own babies. They have been carefully selected by WIC to help offer new mothers important information about breastfeeding to help them meet their breastfeeding goals.
