Breastfeeding Peer Counseling

The WIC program promotes and fully supports a family’s efforts to breastfeed for as long as they are able. In order to do this, WIC has on staff several mothers who have successfully breastfed their children and have completed an 18 hour training course, who act as peer counselors for other WIC families. These women are available by phone for support and information as needed by the breastfeeding family.
