Meet Our Peer Counselors

Rosa Matias-Nunez

In the last 5 years as a breastfeeding peer counselor I have learned that breastfeeding is 100% about perseverance and having a support system. My first time breastfeeding was the hardest and most painful experience but my perseverance made me succeed. Then my decision to continue nursing my daughter till she was ready to stop at almost 5 years old would not have been possible without the support and education I received at WIC. That’s why my goal here is to provide moms with the same information and support so they can make the best breastfeeding decision for them and their babies. Whether they breastfeed once or for 4 years, I will support them 100%.

Jennifer Rodriguez 

Hi, I’m Jenn. I breastfed all seven of my children, the last two being twins. I received so much support and encouragement from WIC, which I am beyond grateful for. I do my best to offer loving support to our mom’s. The kind of help and guidance that I know helped me through some postpartum/breastfeeding challenging moments, as being a new mom can feel overwhelming. I am able to use my own breastfeeding experiences to better help and guide mom’s through their own breastfeeding journeys. I teach mom’s to trust that their bodies will provide all of the nourishment that their baby needs, as well as all of the other wonderful benefits of breastfeeding.

I am available to answer Participants breastfeeding questions and concerns, via call and text, even on weekends and nights.

Alayde  Arellano

Hello! My name is Alayde  Arellano. My Breastfeeding experience goes back almost four years ago when I decided to Exclusively Breastfeed my first born. I soon realized it was one of the best decisions I made as a new mom. After having my second, I didn’t doubt to repeat and create that same wonderful bond. Now I am able to give support and encouragement while sharing my experiences with other mommy’s that want to Breastfeed.  I enjoy putting a smile on a mom’s face and making her realize Breastfeeding is completely natural and definitely achievable.
