Making the Decision

WIC strongly urges moms to breastfeed their babies unless there is a medical reason not to.  But, it 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.

A WIC 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, Amanda Taylor, can be reached directly at 740-622-2139 or through the Coshocton WIC main line at 740-622-2929.
