WIC Peer Counselor helps comfort mothers
"She loved having a BF PC and wishes she would have had a Peer Counselor with her first child. Her BF PC was very knowledgeable, would check in weekly and made her feel comfortable. Her success was meeting her goal of BF for almost 9 (or) 11 months with her 2nd child thanks to her PC."
"Having a Peer Counselor helped me understand my baby and my own body, and with the information she'd send me I found ways to get the support I needed from my mom and husband. At first, it was awkward asking questions but having her help me overcome and understand was so nice. She made me feel human and made me feel like I had a friend. I was able to nurse my daughter for 8 months, which was great."
