PUEBLO BREASTFEEDING PEER COUNSELOR TEXTING PROGRAM

A WIC Peer Counselor is another mom- like you- who breastfed her baby. She may have had the same complications or questions that you have. She has special training to help you and your baby have a successful breastfeeding experience. A Peer Counselor is available when others may not be- while you are pregnant and after you have your baby. Receive breastfeeding information and get questions answered by text or phone during your pregnancy and after.
