Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding nourishes your baby for life

WIC provides breastfeeding promotion and encouragement for pregnant women who are considering how best to care for their babies. WIC also provides on-going breastfeeding information and sup​port for new mothers after your baby has arrived.

Many WIC clinics provide "pregnancy classes" that include breastfeeding information that you will want to know. If you live in an area that doesn't have WIC classes, materials will be sent to you.

After the birth of your baby, you will receive more support and information. WIC also provides electric breast pumps for loan and free manual pumps. A counselor will determine which pump is right for you. Electric pumps are available on a priority basis and stock is limited.
