MAKING THE DECISION
WIC strongly encourages moms to breastfeed their babies unless there is a medical reason not to. But, breastfeeding is not always the right fit for every mom. WIC is here to help soon-to-be moms make an informed choice about how to feed baby.
When you’re pregnant or a new mom, it helps to talk to other moms who know what you’re going through. That’s the reason behind our WIC Peer Helper program.
What a Peer Helper Offers:
Personal breastfeeding success
Tricks and tips to conquer barriers to breastfeeding
Routine phone calls in the early days of breastfeeding
Support when facing hurdles
Advice based on current research and expert knowledge
Coshocton WIC’s Breastfeeding Peer Helper, Carrie Doty, can be reached directly at 740-622-2139 or through the Coshocton WIC main line at 740-622-2929.
