Eau Claire WIC supports breastfeeding!

  • WIC mothers choosing to breastfeed are provided information through counseling and breastfeeding educational materials. 
  • Breastfeeding mothers receive follow-up support through our peer counselor. 
  • Breastfeeding mothers are eligible to participate in WIC longer than non-breastfeeding mothers. 
  • Mothers who exclusively breastfeed their infants receive an enhanced food package. 
  • Breastfeeding mothers can receive breast pumps to help support the initiation and continuation of breastfeeding.

We support, encourage, find solutions and help make breastfeeding a successful experience for mom and baby.
