Meet The Peer Counselors

Ana PC
Ana Salazar, WIC Peer Counselor

Hello, I’m Ana and I have been a Peer Counselor for over 2 years. I breastfed my twins for 1 year and it was the best decision I ever made. I was able to achieve my goal with the help and support of my family, friends, and SIUH WIC Program. Having this help in accomplishing my breastfeeding goals has lead me to become a Peer Counselor and provide other mother’s with the same support and attention I received. I look forward to taking this breastfeeding journey with you and am available to answer any of your breastfeeding questions.

You can call or text me at (347) 552-0969

 

 

 

 

 

Claudia Forero, Peer Counselor, CLC (Certified Lactation Counselor)

My name is Claudia and I have been a Peer Counselor for 4 years. I breastfed my 2 children for a little more than 18 months each and I remember how much I struggled with my first baby. As a new mom that wanted to fully breastfeed the world was a rough place, especially due to the lack of education and misinformation from my relatives and healthcare providers. But, with the love and support from my very own WIC Peer Counselor I accomplished all my goals and decided to help other moms do so too. I have sworn to promote breastfeeding for the good of our future generations and the health of my super heroes: MOMS!

Call/Text me at (347) 215-0539 for answers to all your breastfeeding questions!
