Through WIC, we provide education, peer counseling & simplified hints for breastfeeding with our one-on-one sessions, group classes and individual guidance provided by our lactation specialists. We also loan mothers breast pumps to keep their babies happy and healthy even when busy mothers are physically away from their child.
