Breastfeeding Peer Counseling
“Thanks for making me feel good about what I am doing for my baby.”
Breastfeeding is the most perfect infant food, offering significant advantages of new mothers and their infants.

Breastfeeding peer counseling services include:
- Breastfeeding information for pregnant women
- Encouragement and help for breastfeeding women
- Breast pumps for women who need them
- Support groups or group classes for pregnant and breastfeeding women
The program is available to women who meet WIC eligibility and income requirements
