WIC can help you meet your feeding goals
Chestfeeding, also called breastfeeding, isn't always easy, but WIC can help. WIC's lactation experts help parents chestfeed successfully with individual visits, prenatal breastfeeding classes, support groups as well as connecting you to other resources. WIC food packages provide lactating parents with important nutrients to feed your baby. For more information, visit our Shopping for WIC Foods webpage.
If you are looking for additional lactation support, you can meet with one of our WIC Peer Breastfeeding Counselors. These are parents who have current or previous lactation experience and can offer additional support during your pregnancy and through the first year of life. The counselors are available after business hours as well as on the weekends. If you are interested in meeting with one of our team members, let WIC staff know at your next visit.
