What does WIC offer?

Peer Counselor Program -  A WIC peer counselor is a mother in the community with personal breastfeeding experience who is trained to give information and support to new moms. She will mentor, coach, and support you. She can give you: basic information about breastfeeding, ideas on how your family and friends can support you, ways to get a good start with breastfeeding, tips for a healthy supply of breast milk for your baby, support when you have breastfeeding concerns, tips on how to breastfeed comfortably and discreetly, and advice to help you stick with breastfeeding after you return to work or school.

Breast Pump Program - If you can't get a breast pump through Medicaid or you don't have insurance, you may be able to get or rent a pump through WIC.
