Peer Counselor Program

Who are the Peer Counselors?

The Peer Counselors are mom's just like you who breastfed their children.

They are at WIC to help first time mothers or mothers who did not breastfeed.

They provide breastfeeding information by phone, text, and in person

They can help you successfully breastfed while you are going to work or school.

They can issues pumps and schedule your WIC and Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) appointment
