How does WIC Support Breastfeeding?

Most women have questions about breastfeeding. Each time you visit WIC you have the chance to get answers to your questions.

  • WIC can help you:
  • Talk about your thoughts and concerns and learn about the benefits of breastfeeding.
  • With tips for talking to family and others about how important it is to breastfeed.
  • Learn about breast pumps, where to get one if you need one, and with ideas on how to continue breastfeeding when you return to work or school.
  • Learn about places where you can get additional breastfeeding help if you need it and services available to you in your community.
  • WIC provides extra foods for breastfeeding women.
  • In addition to the services available statewide, local WIC programs may provide:
  • A chance to talk to other WIC participants who have breastfed, Mother and Baby groups, baby showers, and other special events.
  • Breastfeeding classes and lending libraries with videos and books.
