ONE OF WIC'S MOST IMPORTANT ROLES is to promote, support and protect breastfeeding for the mothers and babies we serve! Moms everywhere want to give their babies the best start in life. Breastfeeding is an important first step, for both you and your baby. While you’re pregnant and after your baby is born, you can meet with a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor or Nutritionist at WIC. This is a good chance to talk with an expert who can answer your questions and give advice. Let WIC’s breastfeeding experts support you every step of the way.

BREASTFEEDING PEER COUNSELOR-MOTHER-TO-MOTHER PROGRAM

A WIC Peer Counselor is a mom like you who breastfed her baby. All of our Peer Counselors have completed in-depth breastfeeding training and are Certified Lactation Counselors. They are here to help you and your baby. Click Breastfeeding Peer Counselors, call 617-376-8701 x18 or email wicbreastfeedingcounselor@gmail.com

PRENATAL CLASSES

Our Quincy WIC Program offers the opportunity to learn more about breastfeeding before your baby is born. Classes help you know what to expect when you start to breastfeed, and it’s a great way to meet other new moms! Click Prenatal Classes to view more details.

EXTRA FOOD

To help you stay strong while you breastfeed, you’ll receive extra food in your WIC checks for up to a year after you have your baby. That’s just another way WIC helps keep both of you healthy.

HELP GETTING PUMPS

Are you going back to work or school after your baby is born? WIC can help you get a breast pump through your health insurance plan or our free lending program.

World Breastfeeding Week 2015 The theme for this year is a revisit to the 1993 World Breastfeeding Week campaign on the Mother-Friendly Workplace Initiative. The 2015 WBW is a global, regional and national campaign to empower and support ALL women, working to adequately combine work with child-rearing and breastfeeding.
