Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding offers the baby and mother a huge advantage physically, emotionally, and financially. The nutrients and interaction enhance your infant's brain development, protect from illnesses, help the baby and mother bond emotionally and physically, and ensure the baby is regularly exposed to language, positive social behavior, and positive stimuli. It has also been shown to help prevent postpartum complications like depression.


Having trouble? Need your questions answered?

We know breastfeeding is often difficult, or may even seem impossible. You don't have to figure it out alone!
All of our WIC staff are trained to encourage and support breasfeeding and SCPHD has breastfeeding experts to help you learn the basics of breastfeeding and early nutrition. Our WIC program keeps several lactation consultants and educators on hand in each office. If you have any questions contact your nearest office and ask for the WIC program.


Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program

Alongside the breastfeeding educators, SCPHD provides an evidenced-based peer counseling program to help new mothers adjust to obstacles around breast feeding. The program is made up of local WIC mothers who have breasfed their own babies. These mothers are handpicked by WIC staff to help give new mothers basic breastfeeding information, counseling, and support.

Peer Counselors receive specialized training to help with:

The WIC Peer Counselors will contact mothers regularly during the pregnancy and during the early days and weeks of breastfeeding. Peer counselors will also assist with prenatal breastfeeding classes and are available to new mothers outside the usual working schedule who are having breastfeeding questions. Peer Counselors refer mothers to appropriate lactation experts or healthcare professionals if the mother’s concerns are outside the peer counselor’s scope of practice.
