What is a Peer Counselor?

WIC Peer Counselors are moms just like you.  We know what it is like to be a new mom and understand that motherhood is different for everyone.   We have breastfed our babies and have had questions and concerns throughout our breastfeeding experience.  We are good listeners who can identify with mothers and their concerns.  We are here to make sure that you never feel alone and always have someone to talk to.

We have been trained to help solve breastfeeding concerns and to know when medical attention is necessary.  We are able to provide basic breastfeeding information to pregnant and nursing women.  We are on call day and night either to speak to directly or communicate through texts.
