The Celebration Continues
This Friday the WIC Peer Counselors (PC) and Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) sat in the Kaplan Family Pavilion lobby promoting human’s first nutritious foods, breast-milk! Promoting breastfeeding is nothing new for our WIC Peer Counselors and Certified Lactation Counselors. Our Peer Counselors visit the local hospital and assist mothers with breastfeeding and spend their days at WIC talking to breastfeeding women and women interested in breastfeeding via the phone, text or in person. As proud supporters of breastfeeding WIC has a breastfeeding room, and most of our Registered Dietitians are Certified Lactation Counselors and are ready and eager to help families take on the rewarding task of breastfeeding their infant.
As National Nutrition Month continues WIC challenges you to learn more about the endless nutritious benefits of breastfeeding!
