Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is the healthiest way to feed your baby. Breastfeeding classes and support groups are available at all WIC clinics and are led by a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor. A counselor can also provide individual support and education. WIC can provide a breast pump to women who do not have access to one.

A woman that breastfeeds her infant will receive an enhanced food benefit package. A breastfeeding mother will also receive food benefits when she breastfeeds for a full year.

Breastfeeding specialists, such as, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Certified Lactation Specialist and Certified Lactation Educator are available.
