Who is a WIC Peer Helper?
A peer helper is a WIC mother just like
you. She lives in your community and has breastfed her own
baby. She has been carefully selected by WIC to help give
new mothers information about feeding their babies. She is
here to give you support to meet your own goals for
feeding your baby.
