WHO IS YOUR WIC PEER COUNSELOR?

A peer counselor is a WIC mother just like you. She lives in your community and has breastfed her own baby. She has been carefully selected by WIC to help give new mothers information about feeding their babies. She is here to give you support to meet your own goals for feeding your baby.

HOW CAN A PEER COUNSELOR HELP YOU?

Your WIC peer counselor can give you:
  • Tips for how to breastfeed comfortably and discreetly, even in public;
  • Ways you can stay close to your baby through breastfeeding after you return to work or school;
  • Ideas for getting support from your family and friends;
  • Ways to get a good start with breastfeeding;
  • Secrets for making plenty of breast milk for your baby; and
  • Help with breastfeeding concerns.

All of the WIC locations in District 4 have peer counselors on staff ready to help you!
