WIC Process

WIC Encourages and Supports Breastfeeding

While breastfeeding is a natural way to feed your baby, it is also natural to feel a little unsure of yourself.

The WIC Peer Counselor is here to help breastfeeding mothers, whether it be answering a simple question regarding breastfeeding, to needing help with baby’s latch.

Our WIC BFPC is also able to make referrals to the in-house Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC), who can help with more difficult cases with breastfeeding.
