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.
 
MOM-TO-MOM 
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.
