Breastfeeding and Lactation Consultation
Breastfeeding services include:
- Breast pumps
- Prenatal Breastfeeding Classes
- Lactation Consultation
WIC values and supports breastfeeding as the normal way to feed a baby. We have International Board Certified Lactation Consultants on staff. Education and support by one of our Breastfeed Peer Counselors is available at all of our health centers.
WIC offers a breast pump loan program to assist qualifying mothers in meeting their breastfeeding goals. Our breastfeeding staff will determine if you are qualified for a breast pump loan.
Prenatal breastfeeding classes are held throughout the county at various times of day and on Saturdays. WIC also has two Mom and Baby Groups that are a great place to meet other breastfeeding moms; prenatal moms are encouraged to attend.
Please complete the birthing plan to request hospital services to help you breastfeed.
